Console with sliding doors

Submitted by skinnwork on Sat, 03/14/2015 - 01:05

I followed the Emersen Console plans, but with a few changes. The biggest in that I went with sliding doors because I didn't want the doors to open into the living room. This meant having the doors run between the face trim and a guide I tacked into the inside. I also adjusted all of the measurements to fit what I was planning on stuffing into it. I drilled a 3 inch hole in the bottom for all of the cords to run to the power bar and left a gap between the shelves and the back. I kept the wood light to contrast with my floor and painted the doors blue for a mid-century modern-ish feel.

Built from Plan(s)
Type of Wood
Pine plywood
Finish Used
Varathane Diamond finish and Behr paint (applied with a foam brush).
