I found the plans for this rustic console table and only modified it slightly in the height and length to have it fit as a bar/shelf for my kitchen. Turned out even better than I thought it would with a darker finish than I expected using the steel wool/vinegar mixture. A great clean/rustic/classy touch to our old vintage style house. It also helps a lot with space in our small kitchen considering there used to be a much wider dining table in place of the much more space-efficient bar. These plans were very straight-forward and not too difficult to follow and complete with the necessary tools and time.
