Console Table

Submitted by nikkirumm on Fri, 08/24/2012 - 08:18

This was my first BIG project. I was inspired by a console table from a blog Take the Side Street and the Ikea Hemnes Sofa table. I didn't use any plans, so just winged the whole project. I was a bit afraid taking on this project, so I used 89 cent utility boards (roughly 1'x4') that I found at Menard's. So I wouldn't feel bad if it turned out like crap or fell apart. Little did I know how wonderful it would look. I added parson legs to the bottom that I bought from the Home Depot and finished it off with a coat of Minwax Ployshades in Mission Oak.

I'm really excited about how it turned out and have less than $20 invested in the whole project by using the utility wood. This console table holds it all.

The table measurements are 48"x32 1/2"x11 1/2"
