Free Plans to Build a Joss & Main Inspired Claudia Sideboard

– Posted in: Cabinets, Plans, Storage

I love the simplicity of this piece. I built this one and am in the process of finishing it (I’ll share photos later). It is easy and so cheap, too! I spent a little more than $50 to complete this baby! It can be left au naturel or painted and stenciled with a cool design!
