The step-by-step realization of this bedside cabinet:

Cut the feet off the shelf with a jigsaw, rubbing its outline with sandpaper to soften the contours of the molding.

Glue the shell with the wood glue in the center of this shelf transformed into a pediment.
Nail the cleat on the furniture.
Glue the edge of the pediment on the furniture, along the cleat, then nail it on it.

Glue the remaining pieces of the shelf to the furniture legs, as decoration.
Nail them to better maintain them.

On the door, draw a simple pattern to hollow out (inspired by this model for example) then, with a twist, make some holes along the pattern so that you can slide the blade of the jigsaw.
Lay the furniture horizontally, door above.
Cut out the pattern with the jigsaw.
Rub with sandpaper to smooth the cut.

After leaching the furniture, let it dry and apply a coat of paint.
Pass a layer of paint "cloud blue". Let dry.
To pass a layer of patina "earth" with the spatula.
With a damp sponge, wipe off the excess: the patina remains essentially in the reliefs and gives an aged appearance.
After drying, apply a layer of matte varnish in finish.
Good to know: There are plaster or resin decorations at a modest price (Castorama, Leroy Merlin...) that can very well replace the small shelf.
