I went to the Brooklyn flea market last summer and a guy there was selling these for about $250. My wife liked them and asked if I would make her one. I found a bunch of old doors at yard sales and Craigslist. The doors are old and already a bit distressed. Made the shelves from 3/4” cabinet grade plywood and added an 1 1/2 edgeband to the front of the shelf. The second picture shows a little “foot detail” cut in the bottom. Several people saw it (the first one pictured) and commissioned me to make one for them. I’ve sold 3 so far. With the blue one, the customer wanted a “beachy” look for their bathroom. I used vinegar and steel wool that sat in a mason jar for about a week. Brushing this on weathers the wood and I was going for a “driftwood” look. Its nice to find a door with the old hardware still intact.
