Kays Kaisercraft cupboard Inspiration

Kay has done some wonderful creations for the store in recent weeks.  They are stunning!
Today she is going to share how she created a beautiful storage cupboard by Kaisercraft.
Here are the items used in the project:

The first step is to paint the edges of the pieces of the cupboard.

The next step is cutting and matching the paper for the rear of the cupboard

Marking the arch line to cut the paper to size

Marking the bottom edge of the rear of the cupboard to cut to size

Now ink the edges of the cut pieces other than where it joins in the middle.

Now adhere the paper to the rear of the cupboard

Now measure cut and adhere paper to the sides of the cupboard.
 Take note that when covering the internal sides that you will have to snip and remove the paper where there are slots in the cupboard. Also measure and cut papers for the doors of the cupboard.

If you decide to add a little flair and flourish to your doors there are lots of lovely Kaisercraft embellishments available instore. Paint these using matching tones and define edges with ink.

After painting and inking the edges of these glue coordinating paper behind them before adhereing to the doors

 When assembling the draws, glue along the edges, then bring the edges together.

 Secure edges with elastic or hair bands to keep the edges in place and allow the glue to dry before proceeding to cover the drawers.

Assemble the cupboard using strong adhesive
When assembling is complete place some heavy cans on the cupboard until the glue sets.

The rear view. You can maybe see where I have joined the paper so its worth keeping this in mind when selecting your own paper.
 You can see where I added a strip of paper to conceal the join just above the top shelf on the inside where its not noticable

A side view
 using some mini hinges I have in my stash -
Kaiser Mini Hinges FL409 could be used.

The finished product - it is quite suprising how many items can fit into the cupboard.

 You can see here that I have used kaiser treasures metal label pulls TM806 for the handles which I have placed a coordinating paper inside.
