Whitewashed Cubby Media Wall

My husband and I built this for our son's bedroom using all five of Ana’s series of plans for the cubby wall system. We did pretty well, especially considering that it was our very first building project. We made the media component of the wall unit the same width as the two sides since we didn’t need it to fit a wide screen TV. My hubby was thrilled that the drawers went together beautifully. The doors turned out a little “off” -- luckily the room has a beach theme so this piece fits right in with the beach shack look!

Love your version of this! Very nice, especially with the white wash!
We've got our wood cut... now between unpacking, and caring for a newborn and his three siblings, I've gotta find the time to assemble!
