I am in the middle of a huge kitchen remodel (This explains the utter chaos in the background of all the pictures). Unfortunately, the home improvement center lost my floor tiles. So we are kind of stuck until they are found. In the meantime, I decided to build a hall tree for the breakfast nook space.
Time: 3 DaysDifficulty: Medium
The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf.
I replaced the glass with bead board... it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint... First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. (Sorry, forgot to take pictures of this part). Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint. This job was made easier by the help of a girlfriend and a glass of wine.
I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than brown and the glaze was the perfect color.
