I have been wanting to build an entryway cubby for some time now and was excited to see these plans in the book! (Awesome job, by the way!). I modified the plans to fit my entryway space and also used all wood left over from other projects. I added the wood top too. Now I just have to figure out how to hang it!
I'm actually in the process of finishing the Apothecary media console so I used this project to test out the finish I was thinking about using.
Paint: Behr Premium Plus in Beluga, Flat finish
Wood stain: Minwax Dark Walnut, 2-3 coats (I did pre-condition the wood before staining)
Poly: Rustoleum Ultimate Soft Touch Matte
I love the Rustoleum soft touch poly-it dries so beautifully.
I did glaze the edges, too.
I'm planning to build the bench next and finally my entryway will be organized (hard with a 2 1/2 year old!)
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
