This is my first project. With some help from my husband (navigating the power tools-- the table saw in particular) it was completed in a few weeks. We live in Army housing, so I never really know what kind of space we will get. Inevitably, there is never enough storage, so this will find a home in any new home we might live in. I used beadboard for the back, stained minwax special walnut. The paint is Benjamin Moore serenity blue- and then I used acrylic polyurethane- adding another level of kid resistance;) Great plans Ana, and I am so excited to do my next project!

Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Benjamin Moore eggshell latex paint- about three coats- sanding in between with 220 grit sandpaper. Then added (satin)acrylic polyurethane-another three coats- and sanded in between with 400 grit. I didn't sand in between the 2nd and third coat. I don't know if that is technically "correct" , but it seems to make the smoothest surface for me.
