Gathering Supplies to Build this DIY Sideboard

This build was one of the easiest I have done!! It is just a box with some cute feet to dress it up and some patterned doors to make it stand out!! The hardest part was the pattern on the doors and after the first door, you know what you are doing and it goes really fast!!

The total cost to build this DIY sideboard came in right around $225 which is not bad considering the cheapest I have seen sideboards are at Walmart, they are all particle board with no real wood for that cost! And if you happen to find one made of wood, it seems it is always a couple thousand dollars!

Update: After the crazy lumber price increase of 2021 and 2022, the current price to build this DIY sideboard is around 400 bucks which makes me very angry but it is still cheaper than anything you can but really since EVERYTHING has gone up in price! 😬

    1. Hey Joellen!
      I am so sorry I missed this question somehow! I am adding the stain colors to the post as it is included in the plans on Kreg tool but I didn’t realize they weren’t posted here! The stain is three stain colors layered on top of each other! I started with Rustoleum antique white, then a layer of Minwax classic gray, and finished it up with Minwax Jacobean! I am pretty sure I have used both Minwax in all the colors and Rustoleum and it has not changed the outcome, it looks the same either way! Hope that helps!

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!


    1. Hey Bryan!
      I always use Purebond Plywood (affiliate link) sold at Home Depot on my indoor projects unless otherwise stated! It is the BEST! Hope that helps!

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!

    1. Hey Kiki!
      Thank you so much for your sweet words about my buffet! I hope your build went well, or is going well if you are still working on it! Lol! I found the pulls at a hardware store called Sutherland’s…which they have locations all over the central US but I’m not sure if they carry them any longer! They are made by Hickory Hardware and here is the link to them on their website, but they charge 10 bucks for each one, and I think I only paid 6-7 dollars each! So you may want to do a search and see if anywhere offers them cheaper! https://hickoryhardware.com/collections/pull/products/hickory-hardware-bungalow-cabinet-pull-p2153
      Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions! Have a good one!
