Farmhouse Console Table

We built this based on the Farmhouse Console table for our son's apartment for Christmas. We had to alter the dimensions for him to get it back in his SUV and also for where he wanted to put it.

The table is 5 feet long and approximately 15 inches wide. Since it was more narrow in width than the plans, we did not use the cross with the 2x2's at the end or used 2 long pieces of wood for the shelves. We put 2x4's as reinforcements for the wood at the end on the shelves and in the middle and used 2 pieces of wood for each shelf.

Instead of 2x4's on the top, we used 2x3's as with the pandemic 2x4's are going for about $10.00 for an 8 foot and 2X3's are going for half of that.

We stained it with Dark Walnut.

We plan to make this table (probably more like the original) the coffee table and end tables to replace glass tables in our house this spring.
