      multi-drawer media console by Kara Paslay 1) 4 x 8 ft sheet of stain-grade plywood ■(1) 4 x 8 ft sheet of MDF ■old drawers and metal files gathered from local flea markets ■1 framed mirror ■1 metal base ordered from your local sheet metal shop This is how we made it: 1. First, we took a trip to the flea market and picked up a bunch of old drawers made of wood and metal. We also grabbed a rectangular mirror that was larger than our DVD player. 2. The metal files were in working order, but we had to make boxes for the rest of the wooden drawers to slide into. Tim made them out of MDF, and I painted them. 3. Next, we stacked the drawers on top of each other until we found a look we were happy with. Once we found that look, we took measurements, and Tim built a large box out of stain-grade plywood. 4. Then we ordered a metal base from our local sheet metal shop. A metal base creates a nice separation from the floor so that it doesn’t feel too heavy/bulky for the space. 5. Last we stuck the drawers inside the plywood box and placed it on the metal base! I feel like the console could have looked very disheveled and DIY (in a bad way), but we were able to make it feel very clean and structured by fitting all the drawers within one larger wooden box.
