My wife and I were looking for a farmhouse style media console and found the Grandy Sliding Door Console and loved the look of it. After reading the plans and discussing it we decided that we did not want to take the extra time to build the metal sliding hardware and also wanted it for a lot of storage items, so we decided to just build 4 hinged doors instead. We love it and the plans were so easy to follow. We followed the plans step by step up until we built the hinged doors. We also did not put any wood on the back side of the project since it is against the wall and we have doors covering the front opening. Time consuming to finish it nicely with staining, sanding, painting, etc. But not too difficult of a project overall. The doors take some time to get all the angles just right, but worth taking your time to make sure everything is straight and even.
