Not only does my wife love DIY projects, but she also loves to cook. A few years ago we built this awesome raised vegetable garden, and with far too many tomatoes she got into canning. And with all the work she has put into canning, I decided to build her a jelly cabinet to display her array of canned goods. Enjoy!

After assembling the door and before you staple on the screen, You’ll need to finish the cabinet and door frames. You’ll notice that I also added trim to the top edge. I thought it added a nice touch. To finish we started by staining the cabinet with Kona wood stain.

Then we applied vaseline to the edges and corners and painted the entire project with a linen white chalk paint.
