DIY Console Table for my Craft Room

Today I want to share with you the DIY Console Table that we built for my craft room. 

I am so excited to share this with you all!
My husband and I made our first piece of furniture!
I had a treadmill in my craft room and it was just too big for my small room. 
So we moved it to another room and I was left with a blank wall in my craft room. 
I knew that I wanted another table to hold my sewing machine and die cut machine. 
I searched Pinterest for table plans. 
These pics represented what I wanted. I needed something tall and narrow.

We found free DIY Console Table plans here on Sawdust Girl. 

We followed these plans,but changed the dimensions of my table to fit my space. 

We ran to Lowe's and bought the wood. 

We found these laminated pine panels for the top and bottom table boards. 

Here is the rest of the wood for the legs and panels. 

We set up the saw, nails, sander, and got out our trim paint and brushes. 

Here is a picture of the table in progress. 

We started on this Saturday afternoon and completed it by Sunday evening. 

My table dimensions are 48" long x 35" tall x 20" wide. 

Here is the completed table in my craft room. 

It fits perfectly on this wall. 

The height is perfect for standing and running something through the sewing machine or my evolution die cut machine. 

I can reach the sewing machine peddle perfectly. 

The bottom shelf is wonderful storage too!

There is room in the middle of the table for my current scrapbook album. 

To add a decorative touch, we added these corner braces to each corner of  the table. 

This tied the table in with the silver edges that are on my Ikea wall shelves

Painting the table white also blends it in with my Alex Ikea drawers

Side View. 

You can tell from this view that the table is not very deep, which is what I wanted. 

I love my new table!!

I am so proud of us for building our first piece of furniture. 

Yes, we had hiccups, but we worked through it and did it!

I hope you enjoyed this post. 

I hope that you will subscribe for future posts. 

Hugs, Shelly
