It's Done, It's Done, It's Done!

Oh my word. I think I am the coolest person on the planet right now. I know that is prideful but I BUILT THIS. Me! Ok, my husband did nail in two nails but only because he wanted to play with the super awesome nail gun, too!

I'm in raptures. The first thing anyone HAS to see when they come over is the media console that I BUILT ALL BY MYSELF!

It's been a few weeks and I still can't believe I did this. Thank you, Ana at KnockOffWood! Your blog inspires me. It made me do something that I probably wouldn't have considered doing for myself. I feel like I can do anything if I just have the right tools and a plan!

  1. YEA!!! Building things is so empowering! I love the color too!

  2. It looks fabulous! I love building things too, but I mainly refinish furniture.

  3. Awesome! Found your blog via Knockoffwood's fan page on FB. I'd love to know how you painted the media console so the wood grain still shows through. Thanks!

  4. lyinola- it's a stain! Aegean blue to be exact. You can get your stain custom done at HD. I think they have like 30 colors or so to choose from. It took three coats of stain and three coats of poly.

  5. OMG that is awesome!!! Love the stain finish and the little doors.
