250$  I didn't use pocket screws because I wanted the wood to be able to expand and contract as it should. I used biscuits. All Home Depot pine. Distressed. Belt sanded. Orbital sanded. Upgraded "feet" trim out of 1x3. Made the brackets to secure the top to the bottom with a table saw. Grooves cut with biscuit joiner. This was a gift and I wanted it to be perfect. Total of about 32 hours. Could've done the original plans in 15-20.
