Hey guys! Well, I went plan shopping again over at Ana’s and I fell in love with this!
This is the Pottery Barn Andover Media Console. It’s on SALE now for $700;) Gag! I used Ana’s plans and built my own for about $175 including hinges and knobs!
Here are a few of the steps I took:)
This is where the fun stopped:( The doors were a pain but not impossible. Whether you are doing all doors or drawers and doors DO NOT CUT THESE PIECES ACCORDING TO THE PLANS. WAIT UNTIL YOU CAN MEASURE THE OPENINGS! I have learned this from past experiences and measured my actual door openings before I cut the wood this go ’round. I went back and compared my measurements to the plans and they were very different. There is no room for error with the way these doors sit in the cabinet and it is a headache waiting to happen;)
Okay! I have to stop there but I can’t wait to show you how I finished it! This is my FAVORITE piece of furniture I have built (I’m sure that will last until my next piece;) Over all, I would say that this was an intermediate build. The actual cabinet itself was beginner but the doors upgraded it to intermediate;) Time invested: about 4 good quality morning naps from cutting the wood until the last knob was screwed in:) LOVE!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
