Pottery Barn Storage System DIY ~ Update!!!

I'm finished with the cubbies!  Yay!!  I told you that I would be back with pics after completing the other three cubbies and here it is!!!

Woohoo!!!  The only part that I have left to construct is the Media Hutch....oh and the drawers on the bottom corner bases.  If you missed the post on how I used Ana's plans, from Knock Off Wood, to build the cubbies you can go here.

Total Cost for Materials:

I have had some question on the total cost I have spent to build this.  I have purchased all of the wood so far (minus the wood for the drawers) and it has cost $210 exactly.  I live in Texas and prices vary by locations so if you are trying to plan the cost for your own, you can use my cut layouts to determine how many boards you will need to buy and price them at your local hardware store.  I anticipate spending another $30 for the drawers but I will give you the exact cost once I complete the entire piece!  ***If you have questions for us it is best to email us at shanty2chic@yahoo.com or visit us on Facebook.  We try to answer all questions but we cannot reply to you from a comment if you do not allow it when you leave the comment:(

Also:
Just want to let you guys know that Whitney is out of town with the Hub's for a long, well deserved/needed vacation and she will be returning early next week:) 

One more thing:


Don't forget about the Link Party and Giveaway this Sunday at 9pm Central Time!  Can't wait to see you there!  You can scroll down to see the information on the Party and Giveaway:)  We'd also love for you to grab our Party button at the top right hand corner of our sidebar to help get the word out!

So impressive! You've inspired me. I just rearranged our family room in anticipation for building this little diddy.

Wow! That sure looks like it's coming out beautifully.

Thanks for your original post about the Knock Off Wood site. I've been dreaming about making furniture ever since.

I'm putting the primer coats on the entry shelf with hooks that she has on her site. It's the first "real" finish carpentry I've done, though I've done lots of rough carpentry with my dh.

I feel like I've suddenly been given a whole new burst of energy (which is great at 46y.o.! LOL I went just today and bought wood for two more projects. This is so great!

Thanks so much for bringing our attention to this fantastic site and for sharing your progress. Can't wait to see yours when it's all finished!

Ana White said...

Ashley, you are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring us all.

Jennifer said...

I jumped over here from knockoffwood.blogspot.com, and it has been really helpful to watch your progress with this build. I have been thinking about trying this project, but one thing I have been wondering about- do you think you are going to screw together the pieces that get stacked on each other? I have been worried that it would be a topple hazard otherwise- just hadn't seen anything on Ana's blog about it. Thanks.

Kristin said...

Wow, that is looking amazing! Can't wait to see the finished product!
