Really, how difficult could it be to build a table with four solid legs and a chunky top? “Not that hard” I had always assumed…. yet never found any plans to build my own. Until 2 weeks ago when I came across my new favorite blog, Knock Off Wood. Ana is one badass chick and my new go-to gal for furniture. Between her and my friends (they don’t know it yet, but they are my friends!) at Young House Love I could furnish and redecorate my entire house.
Anyway, Ana made up some plans for the kick-ass console table I’ve been eyeballing and I jumped on it. The price tag was by FAR better than the $499 one at the “other” store, not to mention the satisfaction of building something on my own. My friend Ricky lended me his tools (thanks Ricky!) and my darling husband his time. We bought everything else we needed (lumber, wood glue, screws, stain, etc.) at the big blue hardware store and set to work. Here it is in progress:
…once it’s been sanded and stained I will post the final pictures!
