Barn Door Bookcase - Arhaus Inspired

Hey everyone!! I’m so glad to be back today to share this project with you all!! My mom actually sent me a pic of this wardrobe when she and my Dad were in Arhaus furniture one day, and I of course added it to my To-Build List immediately!! LoL!! But like so many things on my list, I had forgot all about it…until the other day on IG (by the way do you follow me on Instagram? If not you better get over there and follow me!! Ha! @buildcraftlove) @McNellyfarmhouselove posted it…and it stopped me in my tracks, and in that instant I knew it was my next project!! Bwahaha!!

    1. Hey Sandy!!! Thank you so much!! It is actually painted not stained!! I love lighter color stains but they just don’t work on the 4x4s when they are a reddish pink like mine were, so I tried painting it and glazing it to look almost stained!! I used valspar paint in moose mousse and valspar antiquing glaze!!! Hope this helps!! Thanks for stopping by!!

      1. I am super late to the party but I had a question! Did you have to do anything after the wax?? Or is that the last step?

    1. Hey Sandy!!
      I still can’t wait to get the hardware plans out…life went a little crazy and I didn’t get them posted when I wanted to and I am sooo sorry for that!! Be on the lookout though because they will be coming up in the next two weeks, complete with video!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great one!!!
