This was more work than I thought! It was also much bigger than I thought and I couldn't move it on my own. My husband and I had to wrestle it onto a skate board to move it across the house. :)
I love it!! It is full of imperfections, but I think it adds character.

I built it out of old garage-shelves. The hardware was from ebay and was super cheap. I already had paint and stain lying around. That's why it didn't cost much!

Estimated Cost
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
Dark Walnut Minwax stain on top, and white paint I had lying around the house on the bottom.
I sanded all edges and used the stain to darken them. I also painted coffee onto the white painted parts, waited 20 minutes, then wiped it off with a damp cloth to antique the color a bit.
