It was a race building and finishing the console before my daughter started crawling, but just as she learned to wander around, we were able to hide all of our tv/dvd/receiver cords within this console. Drilled holes in the back and tucked the power strip and cords in a plastic box inside the cabinet doors.
Used a jigsaw for the first time, which was fun as the saw created the neat designs on the feet at the bottom.
For the finish, we wanted a color that could pull off a distressed/modern shabby chic while matching the stained class windows in the house that we just bought.
This was my first time creating doors, which did not run smoothly, but ended up somehow working.
