After the success of my first project, I had to go for #2. I loved not having to predrill and countersink anything on this...just pound away with my hammer. Since I had a bit more confidence about building, I was also able to move a lot faster on this project. I modified the plans by not adding a drawer and keeping the bottom a shelf, as well as adding smaller doors and maintaining an open shelf above them.

Built from Plan(s)

$70 for wood, nails, and hinges/knobs

Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)

1 coat of leftover Valspar chocolate brown paint, sanded down the corners and covered with 1 coat of Minwax polyurethane semigloss.
