My husband and I worked on this in the evenings. It took us about a month, just because we didn't have the time to devote all at once. We modified Ana's plans for the Apothecary Media Console to accomodate a surround sound bar in the center and to custom fit our baskets. We went with 4 cupboards to keep a uniform look. The faceplates were painted before we permanantly attached them with gorilla glue. . . one of the last steps. The finished cabinet is approximately 86 inches wide by 33 1/2 inches tall by 18 1/2 inches deep.
