Not much to say about this. Another piece of simply made furniture. The only kind I know how to build. But getting to learn those raised panels. I still haven’t made those on my own yet, I had the help from my husband for the drawer fronts. The shelves and face frames were all attached with dowels.
This is going to be used near my paint stand I recently posted for my painting books and supplies. Can’t wait to get organized!

”Not much to say about this.”

Yeah.

I don’t have much to say about this, either, except … it’s absolutely beautiful.

Fantastic job !!

Thanks guys. The finish is Milk Paint again and I love the acrycilc poly. It dries so fast and looks so soft. I use it on the rugs I paint too because it’s more flexibal.
Robert, I really don’t have that many books to put on it. They probably won’t even fill 1 shelf. Mostly needed the drawers and room to grow alittle if I need to with the books.

That’s a wonderful build. You added a lot of nice features. Bead board, dentil molding, milk paint. It’s more elegant than simple.

Janice, I’m a big fan of the stain color choices. I love the contrast. Great work!

This is a beautiful piece! Wonderful job on this! I like making the simple pine furniture – the finishing is the best part. So fun!
