Hey guys! I finished my outdoor storage cabinet:)
If you missed the build you can check it out HERE
This was the ultimate motivation behind the new storage cabinet….. Nice huh!
I painted the entire shelf before I nailed the back on and I painted the front side of the plywood before nailing it to the cabinet. I painted the back after and this made it sooooo easy to paint!
I purchased fence hinges to attach the doors
and fence hardware for the handles. I also used outdoor stain to match our fence and the lounge chairs that I built to tie everything together!
I chose rolling catches for the doors to ensure the doors would stay shut and they were super easy to install!
The mess moved from the table into the cabinet but the beauty is that the mess is now hidden behind doors:)
I love the cabinet and I also love the $70 price tag. It was super easy to build and it’s very sturdy!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Here is my version of your project. I really like the way it came out. Thanks for the idea.
Use the plans at www. WoodworkPlans.info for this project like I did – highly recommended you check those out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha

Brilliant! We will need two of these to flank the double doors of the store room under our carport. Thank you for sharing.
Fantastic job! I would like to have one of these on my screen porch!
My hubby would love that too. How brilliant to house a TV in the courtyard! That is fabulous.
Best wishes and happy week,
This is such a great idea! Love those doors with the fence hinges. You are so creative with your choice of materials.
That cabinet is awesome! I wish I had something like that to store all of our “stuff”! We have the same outdoor dining set and I see you took off the back cushions. Mine keep falling over and it’s driving me crazy! Why didn’t I just think of taking them off? Geez.
LOL! We took ours off for the same reason and I was going to put them back on for the summer but the seat cushions are more faded than the backs and it looked bad:( Martha should have added ties to the back cushions darn it!
WOW!! Very kewel 🙂
Thanks so much Reenie:))
I’m so impressed like your other followers. What skill level is needed to complete something like this? My husband used to be a carpenter – but it is like living w/ the shoemaker… so many unfinished projects around here so I don’t dare ask him to “show” me how to build something else. How does one develop this skill to do all this?! I just love it that you are so talented!!! Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Regina! I would say this was one of the easiest pieces I have built! As long as you have a good drill and bits it shouldn’t be difficult for you! Use Ana’s plans and take your time! The doors were a little more tricky but the shelf itself could be done by a beginner! Let me know if you have any questions!!!!
Wow!! Your cabinet looks amazing! I really really love it! We could definitely use one of these!!
Thank you so much Stephanie!
I love this!! I need one of these for my outdoor space too! You might just have inspired me to make this!
Thank you Jackie:)))) I love hiding all of our junk now!!
The fence post design looks really good. Its my favorite part, you are a machine!
Aw thank you Tiffany!
Ok, you? are amazing! I love the cabinet! I am even tempted to try it myself!
Thanks for sharing!
What a neat cabinet and so useful! You did an excellent job building it. One caution though, hopefully you’ve anchored it to the wall so it won’t fall over on a little child etc..
I did have a question…my husband is afraid that this would be a tip over hazard. I know Ana’s plans are pretty solid, but is yours fastened to the wall? If not, does it feel steady on its feet?
what a BRILLIANT idea! i was needing to do something exactly like this!
Wow – is there anything you can’t build? It looks fantastic!
LOL Thank you Randi! The plans make it very easy:) Love saving money:)))
awesome!-thanks so much for sharing this! i just love how it turned out and i think i “need” one:)
LOL! Thank you Lynn:) I always “need” whatever it is I am building too;)
Such a good idea! I have storage cabinets, but none with a TV!!! That rocks.
Thanks so much Cheryl Ann:))) My hubby LOVES it;)
I have a really stupid question…. does your TV not get wet being outside?
Hi! Not a stupid question at all:) We have a covered porch. Before we had the cabinet to put the TV in we would use a grill cover over it….not attractive but it worked;) It doesn’t get wet in the cabinet under the porch at all:)
That looks great! Love the way you can close it all up to protect the tv and hide the “stuff”!
Thank you Angelica! I’m so pleased with it:)
