Super excited to enter the blogging world and I have to give a shout out to my sister over at Farm House Fixins for all the encouragement and tons of help with this new journey! My first post is actually part of my inspiration for starting this blog. I honestly had no idea how many questions I would get regarding the console table my husband built a few months ago, and after I discovered it had been repinned on pinterest over 50K times I knew I wanted to share a little more about it!
I found several different designs on the web that I liked, but only wanted a top and bottom shelf and slatted boards on the bottom so my sweet husband came up with this design! We used the Ana White Diy Rustic X Console plans as a starting point, but then made a few changes! I do not have exact plans but hopefully these pics along with Ana’s plans above will be a great way to start if you are interested! We used yellow pine wood and Minwax classic gray stain which I sanded down after 1 light coat because I thought it was a little too gray! My husband applied the coat of stain using an old rag and we wiped it off pretty quick so we did not get too dark of a stain. We used the Kreg Jig listed below for all of the console table except the slatted boards at the bottom which a nail gun was used for that. The dimensions of our console table is 66″ long x 16 1/4″ wide x 30″ high. We made the biggest possible table that would fit in our front entry way. Be sure and check my daily deals section for decor ideas. To see my console table decorated for Halloween, click here. Please message me with any additional questions you may have, and I will try my best to answer them!
Also, if you decide to build this table, please email me or tag me in a pic because I would love to share!
