Original Shanty2Chic project it was inspired by:
Time to Complete: 4 or 5 weekends
Total Cost: about $250
This was my second project with power tools and boy did I learn a lot! The first was the blanket ladder which was a great way to get familiar with the Kreg. I enlisted my dad on both projects so I could learn how to build things on my own…my husband is too busy with his job to help me. It’s fit the best because I had a blast working with my dad.
I hadto shorten the length by a foot and narrow it by 6″ because of the size of my room. I used 3 coats of minwax special dark walnut and 3 poly.I distressed it with various tools. Can’t wait to finish my dining room and serve my first meal on it!
