Build A High End Console Table

As someone who is constantly decorating, I myself know that it is a process and can take a long time and a lot of $$ to make a house feel like home. So sometimes I have to come up with creative ways to save some money if I want to add something to a space.

We had nothing behind this sofa in our great room for the longest time. And there really isnt anywhere to lay down and be able to sit a glass. We temporarily had a table that I had bought for the basement set behind it while we were renovating that. Well now that table is moved and I miss having a piece there. It made me realize just how bare this space looked.

Well with all of the expenses we are incurring from finishing our basement, I really didnt have a ton of money to spend on some big beautiful console table. I. knew I wanted something simple and a space to sit two ottomans for extra seating. My kids also love to now sit here to eat snacks while they watch TV.

I started searching for tables and absolutely loved both of these by two of my favorite trade vendors. Problem is I don't have that kind of moolah to spend since I'm focusing mostly on the basement. Plus I just finished buying all my dining room furniture. So I wanted to get creative.

I knew coming up with a basic plan for building this would be pretty easy and luckily since my husband has tons of tools, this was a breeze to complete.

I loved the simple shape of the first console, but wanted to add the reeded texture to the front like the second table. These both have drawers but I didnt really need those and wanted to keep this easy.
