I wanted to find a perfect entryway table and looked EVERYWHERE for one that fit what I had made up in my head - then I finally thought - duh, I'll just make it. So I did! And I ADORE it. To top it off, 4 months later, Ikea came out with the exact project I had made (colors and all) for more than double what it cost to make it!
Built from Plan(s)
About 100 EUR but I did not have anything so I had to buy everything new.

Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine or whatever they sell in German home improvement stores
a 3-in-1 primer/paint/finish (2 coats) and basic wood stain (1 coat) topped with a light clear paint coating. Also used filler in the creases/cracks to create a more comprehensive look.
