To the right is a new cubby door that allows access to storage in the eves. The cabin is not a full two stories so the roof drops down within the small bedroom. On this door I've added two wrought iron hooks for hats or other garments, as well as a small shelf for socks, clothing, or any other item the owner chooses. This room has four of these access doors, all of which have shelves, hooks, or some other organizing feature. All of the doors in this project called for 1 by 6 tongue and groove pine. One side is v groove and the other is straight, which faces out to match the existing doors in the cabin. I used the non-premium boards for the extra character of the knots, plus it saves on material costs! I used a natural Tung Oil finish, cut with Citrus Solvent, which protects the wood and brings out the knots and grain very nicely.
Be creative when it comes to finding storage options in small houses and cabins, because every little bit helps when it comes to getting your belongings organized.
