Here I used simple pocket hole joinery for the case and face frame. 1/4” thick trim was used on the sides to give it a frame and panel look. Screws and glue for the construction, latex paint rubbed on for color and Briwax over the paint for a finish. I love the transparency of the paint allowing some of the wood to show through for that aged, worn sort of look. The unit measures 36” wide and 51.5” tall.

Thanks for looking!

I realy like this green colour. It is also very good feature that you can adjust shelves.
