A Console Table Knock-Off
This console table was the first project I took on all by myself. I am so happy with how it turned out, and so proud of myself for pulling it off. I chose this table because it could serve as a landing spot just inside the front door and also provide some much needed storage! And there was just enough room underneath for all our shoes. Perfect.
I think I spent something like $70 on this table. Compared to the $700 it would cost to buy one, I think I did pretty good. And it's similar to the inspiration table (shown below) but more rustic. I would love to have those baskets to put below it!
With each building project I've taken on, I've been amazed at how simple it actually is. Not necessarily easy, but very simple. And Ana White deserves all the credit for that. She makes building so possible and shows women what they are capable of if they are willing to try. We can make better homes for our families on budget if we are willing to put a little work into it. And that is what I want. A home.
I truly believe that ANYONE can achieve that. Want to give it a try? Start with this console table. You can definitely do it.
Have fun making your house into your home! I know I am!
