Industrial-Chic Console Table

I decided to start my venture into the world of DIY when my wish list of items I wanted for our home crossed into the threshold bankruptcy. I decided to start giving our home a makeover room by room and learning how to build things along the way. Our entryway needed some serious help! Plain walls, a TV tray and a never ending mountain of mail, falling all over the floor, wasn't going to cut it anymore. I needed something pretty, something functional, and something that said ‘welcome’ instead of ‘hi, we’re a mess’! The room was a small enough scale it wasn’t overwhelming and I had a couple other builds under my belt so this time I wanted to push myself. The common theme for our home makeover has been rustic-chic with a touch of industrial where I can squeeze it in. I wanted this table to have metal somewhere, somehow. I wanted it to be feminine with a rustic touch but I couldn’t find a plan anywhere that embodied my vision….so, I winged it! At the start of this build I only had my Ryobi miter saw which worked wonders for me until I realized the top was too long to cut all the overhang, from the herringbone pattern, off with it. I ended up with about 3 inches in the center of each side that my saw wouldn’t reach. Rookie mistake number 1: trying to cut that section with a cheap old jigsaw that had an even older, and slightly bent, blade. #fail. Silver Lining: I got my beautiful Ryboi table saw to fix the botched attempt! I LOVE how this table turned out and so does everyone else that walks into our home!

  • The pattern on the top is astounding! You couldn't have found anything more beautiful at a store, for sure. What kind of finish/sealant did you use here?

    • Thank you!! I ended up going for an aged look by oxidizing the whole piece with a black tea and vinegar solution. Lightly sanded it to a color I was happy with and sealed it with a satin finish poly
