If you’re looking for a first time DIY furniture project, Amy Baesler of Hertoolbelt’s double X console table is an excellent choice. This shabby chic design evokes the simple, geometric architecture of barns and old homes without sacrificing elegance of space efficiency. Amy’s guide is simple, and all of the dimensions are listed in her post on Remodelaholic. If you just don’t have the funds to buy a table saw to cut lengths of wood to size, you can always look for a home improvement store that offers custom lengths. It’s a fairly common service, and you’ll want to stop by anyway for some screws, wood glue, wood filler, sandpaper, and paint to polish up your project.
Amy’s project was inspired by this charming Birch Lane Console Table.
