Here are the dimensions for my cabinet ( photo below) . I actually had them cut my plywood at homedepot so I could fit it in my car. This saves me so much time. They cut the top bottom, and sides for me and I was left with a bigger piece for the back of the cabinet that we cut down to size later at home.
Next I cut down the 1×2 to create two door panels. I’m not great with math so I found it easier to simply lay out the wood pieces inside the cabinet with the hinges on the sides just to make sure I had enough room in the middle to still let the doors shut smoothly.
I used the lightest color burlap sold at joanns and applied regular acrylic paint onto it to stain it. You’ll need to dilute the paint quite a bit to help it easily soak into the burlap. I made the mistake by painting my panels before staining my wood. Working ahead of myself and I ended up having to repaint the panels again. After making small test swatches I finally got the color to match the wood. To dry them I let them sit out in the sun and ironed them out before attaching to the panels.
