This is my very first project. This is a cross between the Rustic X console and the Tryde media console. I liked the top of the Tryde, but the ease of the Rustic X.

I painted the trim in slightly off-white, the sides, top and shelf are done in a satin polyurethane.

I was amazed at how easy this was to make following your plans. The hardest part was getting my husband to let me use the power tools (most of which I have either bought for him as gifts or I owned before we got married). He says, "I thought you were afraid of the table saw?" Only when you use it, dear!

This took a day to build, and then forever to finish (it was like waiting for paint to dry ;)

Thank you for all of the amazing plans you have on this site. You may just be my new hero Ana!

Next up, a dining room table for my daughter, then the farmhouse bed for the other daughter. With a few tools, a little patience and couple of bags of O negative blood on standby, there is nothing you can't DIY. (I kid, I hurt myself with hand tools, never power tools).

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
CIL semi-gloss in Silk Moon for trim, Minwax satin finish polyurethane for shelves, top and sides. Three coats.
