I used Ana's plans and Hillary's suggestions to build this extra large buffet. It took probably 25-30 hours if you consider the extra trips to Home Depot and Lowe's because I didn't yet have the proper tools. I used Annie Sloan's French Linen as my base coat, Old White as my dry brush coat, Annie Sloan Clear Wax throughout and Dark Wax in the crevices. This was my first big league build, so I had to recruit a skilled neighbor for assistance with the drawers and doors. My two recommendations would be to ensure the piece is square at every step, and to cut the wood as you go. Don't make all the cuts at once because there will be adjustments.
