This is the first piece that I have built from your website. The plans were easy to follow. I had to change the dimensions to fit the console where we wanted so it made the parts list a little more time consuming to figure out with a few mishaps in the original plans. After that it was smooth sailing.

I tried to save money where I could so I created my own slides for the drawers rather than spending $100 for the slides. They turned out great. I also made the chalk paint with plaster of Paris since the cost of chalk paint is pretty high.

My wife and i were very pleased with the outcome. Thank you Ana for the great plans. With a little basic wood working knowledge and the proper tools, just about anyone could make this piece.
