So where’d we leave off? Oh yeah…right in the middle of the project. If you missed how we started this console table, you might want to click over there first. The concern was that I knew I wanted something to serve as a bottom shelve, but I worried about having too many different woods all over. A large cut of wood just didn’t seem right to me, so I came up with another option.
I picked up some inexpensive pieces of pine because they had knots in them. My thought process is intense, no? Since the table already had the middle plank, we spaced them out evenly on either side of it—front to back.
We stood back, took a look, and we. were. done. You’ve waited long enough. Wanna see how she turned out? Here she is in her semi-original form.
Ta. Da. 🙂
Well, THAT was worth it. It’s exactly what I was looking for, and it was hundreds of dollars less than the others I found in stores. Score.
Notice the bottom shelf? Gosh. Pretty. When the stain was ready, I sealed it with some Minwax Satin poly.
I would say I spent about $100 total (those darn top planks!), and it was worth every dime. Allll because I was tired of the armoire…
