A console table is a great piece to use behind a couch or in an entryway, but these little pieces can be so pricey, it’s easy to not purchase it. Gail from myrepurposedlife offers a tutorial on how to take apart a single headboard from a bed and re-fashion it into a useful and beautiful console table.
Gail gives us a complete supply list for this project. Her tutorial takes us step-by-step through the process of constructing the table. There are numerous detailed photos along the way that show exactly how she created the console table. Although the process seems to be quite complicated at first glance, it is actually rather straightforward. It only seems complicated because of the thorough explanations Gail provides and the detailed directions.
Gail used a spray painter to paint the table and was done in almost no time at all. She used her favorite method of “sanding” with brown paper to smooth the piece between coats of paint.
