This was more work than I thought! It was also much bigger than I thought and I couldn't move it on my own. My husband and I had to wrestle it onto a skate board to move it across the house. :)
I love it!! It is full of imperfections, but I think it adds character.
I built it out of old garage-shelves. The hardware was from ebay and was super cheap. I already had paint and stain lying around. That's why it didn't cost much!
I sanded all edges and used the stain to darken them. I also painted coffee onto the white painted parts, waited 20 minutes, then wiped it off with a damp cloth to antique the color a bit.
