Open Shelf Console with Modifications

Submitted by Stacie on Thu, 01/23/2014 - 07:32

I modified the size of the original plan to better fit the space. It is slightly deeper and taller than the plans. I also used a router to create a rabbet for the glass inserts in the doors.

The finish is a homemade chalk paint followed by multiple coats of furniture wax. The build itself was quick and straight forward, but the finish took the most time.

The console really pops in a room full of stained furniture. I love the look, shape, and versatility of it--thank you for sharing the plans!

This project looks really good. I love the glass inserts and the color you chose.
