Modified Grandy Console with inset doors

I wanted to switch things up. I have made and sold many of the Grandy consoles with barn doors but my current new (to us) home was more modern traditional, definitely not very farm house. The Grandy plan makes a solid piece of furniture which is exactly what I need for it to survive amongst the giant teenagers that we are raising BUT I wanted to switch up the doors and add some traditional elements with a pop of modernish hardware. Make sure that your face frame openings are square. Add some non-mortise hinges, latch bolts and L brackets and this plan appears transformed!

Estimated Time Investment

Finish Used
Kilz primer, sw Dover white with a poly clear coat for added durability. Sand between all coats (time consuming but it adds a professional edge to your finishes).I use a critter sprayer from Amazon for the exterior and for poly. Foam rollers for the inside. Stain color for X doors was kona and lighter toned doors was a process (see Instagram post) but involved white wax.
