Faux Printmaker's Cabinet Entertainment Console

Submitted by jcrist30 on Mon, 08/21/2017 - 07:53

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.

Absolutely beautiful.  I plan to build this in two weeks, or start building it.  Love your pulls.  Where did you find them?
