When good friends of Jen from House of Wood bought their first home, she built them this workbench-style console following plans from Ana White. The couple plans to use the console as a coffee bar in their breakfast nook. Talk about one awesome housewarming gift! The Pottery Barn inspiration comes close to the $2000 mark, while Jen built hers for only $65!
The original inspiration came from the Markham Console Bar from Pottery Barn.

I think the finish on the knock-off is MUCH nicer than the Potter Barn original. The PB one looks like it is trying too hard to be "distressed" and old. The one that Jen made looks like a nice piece of furniture. Great job Jen!!
