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
