After seeing Ana's plans and how Jen Woodhouse at "House of Wood" finished it, I wanted one too! Ana's plan are very thorough and Jen's blog showed a very detailed version of how she completed it. I made a few changes, such as the pull down drawer front to conceal the DVR player and I inset the top rather than have an overhang.
It was quite a bit of work but totally worth it! The piece turned out beautiful.
Thanks Ana!!!! Beth.
