About This Project

This project was done casually over a series of weekends.

I used the base plan for the Shirley Console table and modified it by using 2x2s instead of the 1x2s and changed the lengths to fit in a space between my sets of stairs. The drawers were easier to install than I first thought, however I should have placed the slides up a little further up than I did (I should have researched it a tad more.) For the drawers I found some knobs from Anthropologie that seemed to fit well with the personality of the table.

I'm a hobbyist but I am very pleased with the end result and wanted to share - this site has been a real inspiration for me and was the push to try something I'd always wanted to but was not confident enough to do. Thank you, Ana.
