Of all of my Ana White-inspired builds, this is absolutely my favorite so far and the first piece of furniture I've built that I absolutely want to use as the centerpiece and inspiration for my DIY redecorating. I slightly modified the height of the top compartments so that all of our electronic equipment would fit. I also used 2x4's, which I ripped into 2x2's using an old blade where I slightly bent a couple of the teeth to leave the rustic curf marks. Because I altered the height of the top and bottom sections, I had to rip down my 1x3's for the bottom, and I had to use 1x4's (ripped down appropriately) for the top section's flip-down faux drawer fronts.
