Distressed Sliding Door Console.

I absolutely enjoyed making this console. It's different and a conversation starter in our home. After figuring out how to make the hardware (pulling my hair out for a moment), I was off and running. I wanted to make my piece look old with character and charm. I searched for reclaimed wood and finally  found thick pieces of wood that were perfect for my top. After sanding for hours (literally hours!!), it was smooth and ready for a stain. I distressed the cabinet base after applying a teal paint.
