DIY Rustic Console Table Under $30

  • August 5, 2017


I created this gorgeous thing out of leftover lumber. I got a little creative with some 2″ x 2″ stair rails I found in the garage. I looked up how much this lumber would cost if I actually went to buy it, though. The total came to just under $30. It was an interesting and fun weekend project. The top is made of 2- 1″ x 6″ pieces cut 48″ long with qa 1″ x 3″ running down the center just to mix it up. I made a frame/skirt to attach the top to the legs out of 1″ x 3″ pieces. The legs are made from the 2″ x 2″ rails and I attached a 1″ x 6″ piece to the back. This gives the table stability and created the back support for the baskets I plan to put on the lower shelf. Funny story…this table wasn’t planned with a lower shelf, but after creating the braces for the legs it occurred to me to add 1″ x 3″ pieces across for more storage space.To get the rustic look, I banged it up with a hammer and scraped it with some shears. I stained the table with the same stain I used for the coffee and end tables I built last month and put on two coats of polyurethane. I love the look! https://everythingmistyfied.com/2017/03/14/diy-rustic-console-table-under-30/
