Default Grand daughters shoe storage.

While visiting my grand daughter, I noticed that she had all of her shoes lined up against the wall in her room. I decided to build her something that she could use to store them in and to become a piece of furniture for her room. I made the attached cabinet from pieces of lumber that I had stored in my shop. Since she is an avid reader, the top is for her books and the drawers are for what ever she likes. We plan to load it in the back of our SUV and drive it from Texas to North Carolina to deliver it.
The hardest part of this build was the adjustments of the swinging section to keep it from rubbing as it opened and closed. Which I did by closing the door, and shimming it up a bit off the bottom and adding a piece of 1 by inside of the cabinet and attaching two small hinges from the inside. And by keeping the inside back of the swinging part larger then the opening, this allowed it to open with out passing through the opening. I also used 1 inch floor sliders for furniture on the impact corners to absorb the banging that a child would put this through. Hope it last longer than it takes me to get back home.

How great! I'm sure your granddaughter will remember you making her this and her using it for her whole life. I had a little inlay box made by my great grandfather for me that I recently passed along to my daughter who is grown. To keep little things in, it has little compartments. He was born in 1860. It was such a treasure then and still is.

My grandchildren live a plane trip away. I'm thinking about something I can take on the plane and assemble there for the little one, probably one of those folding stools. Or ship the parts ahead of my visit.

David, nice job, very thoughtful and original. Looks so good it could sit next to furniture in a furniture store! Thanks for sharing. Love your humor about it lasting til you drive back home,,,

Your grandaughter gotta love you!

Why do you suppose that the pictures came out sideways. They were taken straight on and posted that way, but came out sideways.
