Media Console

This is the first project my husband and I have made. Funny enough, it was suggested in the directions to not do this as a first project. We had already gotten the materials and our minds were already made up on building this media console. We just took it one board and one nail at a time. Sometimes we would take one step forward only to turn around and take two steps backwards. We learned A LOT on this project. Needless to say, we loved working together and building our own furniture... We will be building more for sure!

Finish Used
I had some navy blue paint I found at the "miss tint" section at Lowe's for only $1.80! I decided to paint this color on 1st. After painting, I skimmed over the wood, with my sander, in spots to give it the rugged look I wanted. Then, I painted Minwax's "dark walnut" stain over the entire piece. Afterwards, using an old rag, I wiped it all off. The next day, I went back and brushed glossy polyurethane on to seal it.
