I've been looking for a way to hide my ugly garbage can in my kitchen for a while now.  I figured it would cost way too much to buy something like this and was so excited to find Ana's plans online.  This was my first furniture attempt ever.  The plans provided made the entire process so easy.  I used some leftover beadboard for the door and some odds and ends we had laying around for the hardware to keep the costs down.  

Estimated Cost
about $30
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine common board and some select pine
Finish Used
The cabinet was first painted with Americana Decor chalk paint in Vintage then topped with Americana Decor chalk paint in Everlasting and distressed with my random orbit sander. The bead board in the door was painted with some leftover Annie Sloan Chateau Grey. To protect the finish I topped it with Annie Sloan clear wax (3 coats on the top).
