Christmas Gift? are we running late or are you getting ready for this year?? Just kidding of course.

The doors are pretty uniform and well fitted as is the joinery that we can see … nice work …
Looks like a milk paint wash for the finish?? and I assume that the bins tilt out.

The only thing I would have changed is to put a taper on the legs from the floor to the bottom shelf .. just an added Shaker or Arts & Crafts look.

Nice piece and well crafted

This is something on my list of things to make this year. You have done a very nice job on the build.
Have fun and keep making sawdust.

Yes- backlog of projects posted today from the last year or so- haha!
The finish was actually a driftwood stain mixed with a bit of darker stain, then poly on top. Added pic with door open.
Misterchips- I got the plan from AnaWhite- go check it out, easy build!
Thanks guys!

Indeed very nice rustic, old barn look. I wonder which type of colouration you used – looks very natural.

I love this country furniture. You really did a nice job on it. Congratulations. We love to go to the Smoky Mountains every year and there’s a lot of reproductions similar to this and other pieces in the gift shops.
