This was my first major woodworking project. I found the plans for it in a home and garden magazine.
The main purpose for this armoir is purely function, to provide more storage space for my wife and I in our tiny 1 bedroom. It’s made from construction grade lumber to keep the price down, and all joints were made with a pocket hole jig. LOT’S of learns on this project, but I’m happy that it stands and stays in one piece.
I came up with the interior shelves (which weren’t in the original plans) for more organization. Used one coat of a colonial red, then spot sanded to give a more antiqued look. Since no sealer or primer was used, price was kept down, and the antique-ing helps hide many of its flaws (haha).
Any feedback is welcome and I look forward to posting more projects in the future.
