My first project and it was so much fun to build! I had no problems cutting the wood and getting it sanded and ready to go. I made a mistake putting it together and didn't realize it till several steps later. Luckily it was easy enough to unscrew it and go back and fix it. I was brave on the gray/light walnut colors I chose but I like how it turned out. Glad I tackled something easy for my first project. Now I'm happily looking forward to my next one. Thanks for the great plans!
