Rustic X Console Table

Submitted by eddingsr on Fri, 09/23/2016 - 11:41

I built this table for a friend. It was fairly easy! The only problem I encounted was getting the 2x2 trim pieces flush with the legs while building the frames. When I just laid them on the floor they would sink in further than the legs. So I made sure to check their positioning and hold them in place with one hand while drilling in the screw with the other hand. It was a fun build and I would definitely build it again!

Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
I painted the sides, trim and legs with HGTV Sherwin Williams Pursuit of Teal in flat. Sanded down with orbital sander with 220 grit. Then I used Minwax pre-stain wood conditioner on the top, and two bottom shelves. Then I used Minwax stain in Provincial over all. I let it set for about 5-7 minutes before wiping off. I sealed it all with 3 coats of Polycrylic in satin, sanding between coats with 400 grit.
