Finally Finished!!

Ok, so I guess I lied in my last post when I said I didn't finish any projects today because I finally finished my tv stand. I don't know why I've been calling it a 'tv stand' this whole time 'cause really, 'tv stand' sounds so puny and this is one honkin' piece of furniture! Buuut I guess I'll be consistent and just call it a tv stand. Ok Ali, quit jabbering and show a picture already!!

Isn't she lovely? I wish I had more pictures to show, but the garage lighting is horr.ib.le. You can compare my original drawing below and see it turned out almost exactly how I wanted it.

We ended up making it a little shorter which is why the doors on the real piece look squattier, but I just love it! And that's a good thing considering I was out there polyurethaning it when it was in the upper 90's today!

I LOVE IT! What color stain did you use?

I used Minwax Early American. I LOVE that stain because it's so warm and kinda rustic. It's probably the only light stain that I like.
