console table

Submitted by raybotelho on Sat, 06/09/2012 - 13:38

This was my first time building something big :) and im sooo happy with the results. Had been looking for a sofa table/console for so long but couldn't decide on what I wanted , when I saw this on the first page I fell in love. It was fairly easy to build. Took me 2 days, one day sanding, cutting, staining it and the next putting it together. I love how it turned out.

I didnt make the side 'X' bc I want to do something different than the original plan, just trying to figure it out what exactly.

Oh! And I still need to add the decorative hardware, I have it, just need to remember to do it.

Thank you so much for the plans.

One of my favorite things about building is being able to build it however you want. Xs or no Xs -- it is gorgeous. Great work! And it you staged and photographed perfectly. Really, really beautiful.

I used regular walmart brand black tea, let it dry and then applied the vinegar/steel wool solution after that i sanded a bit and diluted white paint in water and applied it all over with a lint free rag, you need to work on small areas and follow it up with a slightly damp cloth. hope that helps :)
