About This Project

Stuck to the plan as described, but I used my Kreg jig to use pocket holes where I could. I used 1x4s for the shelves and joined them together with pocket holes. This made it much stronger. Without joining these boards, the shelves are kind of flimsy, not sure how much weight they could support without some type of support system. I added an extra 2x4 to the top, this made it overhang about an inch on the front and back. I used 20" drawer glides. Also, I notched out the side supports for the 1x4 shelves 3/4" so the shelves sit flush with the side supports.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
150
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
standard 2x4, 1x6/8 lumber
Finish Used: 
Sanded, then painted bare wood with 2 coats of paint, color was one of the pottery barn 2012 colors. I filled in the joints between the 2x4s for the top with stainable woodfiller, then sanded for like 2 hours with 80 grit, then finished off with 220 grit eventually, then I did 2 coats of Minwax Special Walnut stain. I topped that with 3 coats of Minwax Polycrylic Satin.

paint color

Just had someone build this for me, I'm wondering what paint color is on the bottom of yours? It looks great with the stain you chose!
