About This Project

Loved Ana's Balin Console, but the space I had available for this piece was only big enough for two drawers, so I attempted to change it. A few minor mistakes called for a few other modifications as well (the drawer fronts), but overall I am still happy with the product. The first nail and hammer only project I've completed (other than the ten dollar ledges). The passion for this new-found hobby continues, THANKS ANA!

What stain did you use? and finish? I assume you used pine? It looks great, so nice and warm. The drawer fronts give it a nice feel! Rachel

Hey Rachel, It was very simple. Just two coats of 'Nuwood Polyurethane Stain in Walnut'. Lightly sanded between coats.

I LOVE IT!! If you have the time, I would love to know the dimensions of your finished table and any hints you have for me. This size looks perfect for the space I need to fill. Thank you!!!
