Roud Up of DIY Farmhouse Console Tables

I’ve been itching lately to build some furniture, and I’ve finally narrowed in on a perfect project – a farmhouse-style console table for my living room.

I tend to rearrange rooms over and over again until I land on the perfect set up (seriously – I’ve moved our piano by myself 3 or 4 times in the past 6 months!), and now that our living room is hopefully settled, I have the perfect space for a console table. Adding this table will also solve another problem in the room: lighting! We desperately need a lamp in that back corner and nothing has seemed right. This table will be the perfect place for a lamp.

To test out the look in the space, I moved the book rack console table from my kitchen (built from awesome Rogue Engineer plans). Don’t mind the little feet that decided to photo bomb this shot!


My only real requirements of this project are:

  • Farmhouse style
  • Ability to use as much wood from my scrap pile as possible (1×3’s, 1×6’s, and 2x2s)
  • A quick and straightforward build

I’ve been busy pinning away possible console table build plans, and have settled on some favorites. Clearly the letter “x” is a popular theme throughout console tables right now!
