Meuble d'apothicaire
Create an apothecary cupboard

I just moved, then, inevitably, I have to buy furniture … or not!

It’s been a while since I had not made a ticket about my mood on Cré’à’Vapeur, must say, I was moving to my new life in Paris!
And who said move, said quantity of widgets and stuff to move and store! And that’s where the problem starts … Find a cabinet large enough to store all these things without breaking the aesthetics of the apartment (so stately building of the last century) …

I always wanted to find a beautiful apothecary cupboard : it’s beautiful, it’s fine for storing… …and it is especially expensive!
So, let’s find old drawers, a trip to a nearby hardware stores for plywood, and a bit of nails, and a weekend and two people (my sweet and myself) later, here is what happens on paper!

To avoid the beveled wood corners rather unsightly, I add a bottom shelf.
And once the realization’s over, here’s the result, all for less than $200:

Okay, well now I have 29 drawers full of bric a brac and 11 shelves of books, findings, etc. It only remains to make it all “smart”, ie integrated a steampunk lighting system to highlight the objects, and make it remotely usefull…
The end in the next episode!

Feel free to tell me what you think about it!
