My Martha Inspired 3Drawer Flat File Builders Showcase

When I first saw the plans for the Flat File and the other pieces in the collection, I knew I had to have it! Space is limited at my place but I actually gave away another piece of furniture (gasp!!)in order to move this baby in! I use it to store table linens and candles in my dining room. The color is Valspar Blue Arrow and it is stunning with the Martha Stewart Soft-Iron Bin Pulls on the drawers. I love it!

Lumber Used 

Pine boards, and a combo of Birch and Pine plywood.

The 2x2s that are available at the big-box stores where I live are awful. I ripped 2x4s in half (which are roughly 1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″) and adjusted dimensions for the sides of the file.

Finishing Technique 

Primed with Kilz primer first, sand with 220 grit, then paint with Valspar Interior Semi-Gloss in Blue Arrow.
