Barn door console table

In the process of remodeling/updating our home and wanted a console table for our tiny entryway. I'm more of a crafter than a builder but found the plans for this barn door console table from Shanty2Chic and decided to give it a try. This was my very first build and I'm hooked! My 20-year-old daughter was in the process of transferring colleges and moving into her first apartment and asked if I would build her a larger version for her to use as a TV console. Short on time, we used the plans as inspiration to "hack" a bookcase into a double barn door console. I've been finding new projects to try and expand my woodworking skills ever since and I'm having a blast!

  • Amazing job on your very first build! It turned out great, and we love how you styled it! Your daughter must be so proud that she has a piece of furniture built by you.
