  4. Oh, I love it! The hidden storage is pretty cool, and you built it! Amazing. And the white with wood top really reminds me of the console my husband and I bought and built a new top for a couple of months ago:

    1. It has been really great for us. I have been trying to find the time to sit down and add everything up, but it just hasn't happened. I want to say with Paint, and Hardware included it costed me about $250.00 and lots of labor!
