Our customers Richard and Nicola have a feature entrance area in their newly converted home. Like many such 'hallways' it was short of storage for outdoor coats and shoes. Richard contacted us to see if we could help and we sourced a triple pine wardrobe with drawers in the base. They had seen pigeonhole-style shoe storage and asked us to incorporate this into our customisation.
Our Practical Fairy used an end and middle section from the wardrobe to build a module containing the shelves and dividers forming the graduated pigeonholes for footwear. (Each section is deep enough for two pairs). The module sits on the one-piece base and the rest of the wardrobe fits together around those pieces, essential as the cupboard was too big to transport whole. The pigeonhole fronts were trimmed with a beading that was in keeping with the wardrobe.
Multi coat paint finish:
- thorough surface preparation
- professionally sprayed
- one coat of shellac based primer
- two coats of water based acrylic resin undercoat
- two coats of water based acrylic satin in Pale Linen.
- one coat of matt varnish to the exterior surfaces and the pigeonholes .
We fitted out the hanging section of the cupboard with coat hooks. When completed, we took the cupboard apart and reassembled it in Richard and Nicola's home.
The photos show the cupboard on castors, which we fitted to help us move it around while in our workshops. These were removed before we delivered.
