Original Shanty2Chic project it was inspired by:
Time to Complete: 12 hours
Total Cost: $200
We were in desperate need of additional storage in our master bathroom. The storage closet was a perfect solution to our problem and the plans were easy to follow.
We used hemlock wood versus the white pine in the tutorial because Home Depot didn’t have the correct sizes we needed. The stain took really nicely to the hemlock, and is a little higher quality than the pine.
We used two light coats of Varathane stain in American Walnut, and one coat of Varathane semi-gloss poly. We’ll probably go back and stain the back of the door, but for now it’s fine.
We found a door pull that matches the pulls on our bathroom cabinets perfectly, so used that instead of the one in the tutorial.
Overall, this project was fairly easy to complete. Just make sure all of your measurements and cuts are correct before you assemble!
