Open Shelf Console

  • August 11, 2014


I have a narrow space at the end of our hall that needed some attention (and who couldn't use extra storage?) Pinterest is my best friend, and that is where I found the idea and plans to build my open shelf console (thanks Shanty Chic and Ana White!). I did have to modify dimensions; and I will say it took me 3 weeks to get it done start to finish. The biggest challenge was the crooked boards (used a combination of what I had and new stuff) and the hinges!!!! I think figuring out the Kreg Jig on this project was quite satisfying. And the surprise was seeing how it looked like furniture once I got the pieces assembled (made completely by me)! I just finished and placed it in the hall. It still needs the final decorating and magnetic latches. I am proud, and so far my family has given me praise. I learned that the condition and straightness of your boards makes life much easier. And of course, the Kreg Jig.
