My adjustable size console table is inspired by this lovely Birch Lane Console Desk (no longer available). I adore the smooth design and X legs.
I altered a few things up from the first inspiration.
- I created the legs a tiny thicker for a chunkier seem
- The size is adjustable — just cut your boards to the size you want! I chose 66″ for my entry table.
- The depth is considerably less: I wished a narrow table for the entry hall, and this takes advantage of just a 2×12 for the cabinets to make it straightforward.

What sizing is the console table?
The solid wood farmhouse console stands a typical 30″ substantial and is twelve three/4″ deep and 66″ lengthy — but the size is adjustable! (See down below)
Is the console table size adjustable?
Of course, which is just one of the finest features of this straightforward Diy farmhouse entry table! The cabinets and major are simply altered to what ever size you’d like, from about 48″ lengthy (minimal) up to a full twelve-foot 2×12 board! (or even a 16′ board!)
For an extra lengthy 12′ console, or any console in excess of about eight toes, I’d propose incorporating yet another X leg segment or two for assist.
If you just will need an straightforward side table, just one X leg base is very strong with a shorter tabletop, also! Just skip the middle shelf (but you may nevertheless want to set up the assist for additional security).
Is the table portable?
While this table isn’t intended to be portable, the cabinets can be left unattached, so of course, it can be moved simply in various parts. It would be a great present table for a celebration or wedding reception — and our portable wood wedding arch would be a great addition, also!
If you’d like to use this Diy wood console table for activities and will be going it routinely, you could test working with flush mount brackets like this on the X-leg cross parts so it usually takes up considerably less space. I have not ever attempted this but it’s an idea — and which is the finest portion of Diy! 🙂
How to Complete a Double X Wooden Farmhouse Console Desk
Following building the console table, fill the pocket holes with filler and permit to dry. Sand the legs and cabinets right up until easy, ending with a hundred and twenty-one hundred fifty grit sandpaper.
For a darker modern day farmhouse console table like the inspiration graphic, spray paint the base black or oil-rubbed bronze (like the fake metal base on this reclaimed wood espresso table). Then stain the cabinets. For a really custom made-wanting table, test layering an aged gray stain with yet another stain (like this Diy modern day farmhouse console table).
For a white and wood two tone farmhouse seem, I 1st primed the X legs, then painted them white. I used pre-stain conditioner to the major and cabinets, then stained them with Rustoleum Carrington. You’ll want to protect the stained wood with a major coat, like polyurethane.
When all of the finish dried, I slid the major and cabinets into put and which is it! Done!
