I have yet to make this but I simply can't wait! This is the first ever plan I've created so please don't hesitate if you have any questions or comments! I can't wait to see your creations!

You can use your Kreg Jig to secure all of the pieces together from the back or you can drill pilot holes and secure with countersunk screws.

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

I just saw this!

I saw this when it first came up on Antique Farm House a few days ago. My first instinct was to covet it. Then feel sorry for myself that I couldn't afford it. Then I thought "I could totally knock that off and build it myself for WAY cheaper." And then, lo and behold, you've got a plan up.

Thank you!

Great minds~

Ahha! Now at least you don't have to come up with plans, the work has been done for you! Great minds think alike ;) I can't wait to see it once you finish! I figured someone can build it before me then I can covet their work and hopefully that will motivate me to get in gear and build it for myself! Honey says I can't start another project until I finish the kitchen cabinet redo over a month ago :/ Best of luck to you I can't wait to see your creation!

So I'm slightly confused on

So I'm slightly confused on this one because it says read the entire plan before beginning project, but the next subject is finishing instructions. I might be missing it, but I don't see step by step instructions anywhere. Can you help me out? Am I just supposed to use the cut list and dimensions and wing it? I'm sorry this is my first project and all the other projects I've read have a step-by-step instruction list. Thank you for humoring me!

Alexandra, I apologize! I

Alexandra, I apologize! I didn't include instructions, because I have yet to make this for myself. Please feel free to email me misty@413sparrowlane.com and I can walk you thorough how you COULD build this step-by-step. I am by no means an expert, but we can "wing" it together!
