My adjustable duration console table is motivated by this attractive Birch Lane Console Table (no for a longer time accessible). I like the sleek design and X legs.
I modified a number of items up from the unique inspiration.
- I built the legs a small thicker for a chunkier look
- The duration is adjustable — just slash your boards to the duration you want! I chose 66″ for my entry table.
- The depth is a lot less: I desired a slender table for the entry hall, and this uses just a 2×12 for the shelves to make it uncomplicated.

What measurement is the console table?
The good wooden farmhouse console stands a common 30″ large and is twelve three/4″ deep and 66″ prolonged — but the duration is adjustable! (See down below)

For an further prolonged 12′ console, or any console around about 8 feet, I’d recommend adding an additional X leg part or two for guidance.
If you just will need an uncomplicated side table, just one X leg foundation is pretty durable with a shorter tabletop, too! Just skip the middle shelf (but you may even now want to install the guidance for extra stability).

It would be a good present table for a get together or marriage ceremony reception — and our portable wooden marriage ceremony arch would be a good addition, too!

Soon after setting up the console table, fill the pocket holes with filler and let to dry. Sand the legs and shelves till clean, finishing with a hundred and twenty-a hundred and fifty grit sandpaper.
For a darker modern farmhouse console table like the inspiration image, spray paint the foundation black or oil-rubbed bronze (like the fake steel foundation on this reclaimed wooden coffee table). Then stain the shelves. For a truly custom made-looking table, test layering an aged grey stain with an additional stain (like this Do-it-yourself modern farmhouse console table).
For a white and wooden two tone farmhouse look, I to start with primed the X legs, then painted them white. I utilized pre-stain conditioner to the best and shelves, then stained them with Rustoleum Carrington. You’ll want to safeguard the stained wooden with a best coat, like polyurethane.
