Hall Tree

A friend asked me to build her a hall tree. We could not find a door that she liked, so I built it from scratch. Once painted, she wanted it antiqued.
I started with rough cut lumber and cabinet grade plywood for the base. I used bead board from Lowes for the back. I'm pretty happy with it, and I think she is too.

    My husband would like to buy the plans for this. Also, do you make custom order and ship them?
