I just finished this project as a wedding present for my brother. I was able to use all recycled (or pilfered if you like) materials. I made the legs from white oak and cherry that came as bracing for the metal straps that bind shipments of plywood and mdf. The top, bottom, sides and back are plywood that I got for free from a demolition I did last summer. The faux paneling detail on the sides and back is made from door casing that I took out of a bedroom when I replaced the trim. The only thing I had to purchase was the baskets ($10 at Walmart) and the paint ($80 at Sherwin Williams). I primed and painted with Cherry Tomato flat. Then I applied a Faux Impressions tinted glaze. This is my first time trying a glaze. I like the way it turned out and I hope my brother and his wife will be happy in their new marriage and with their new furniture.
