Modified Rustic X Console

This is a modified version of the Rustic X Console, it isn't as long as the original.

I created this, with a little help from my Fiance, as a TV console. We have made furniture in the past, with plans from Ana White, but this is my favorite piece so far.

We looked for months for the right piece of furniture that wasn't extremely expensive or made of cardboard. Instead we found the plans for the Rustic X Console and thought it would be the perfect fit. I also created a cubby bookshelf at the same time to store my hundreds of movies.

Eventually our entire living room will be homemade, the next project on our list is the matching coffee table!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
We used multiple stains to create the right color for us. It is greyish with a slight warmth, the photos don't do the stain any justice! We then coated with 2-3 layers of poly in a satin finish, using a natural bristle brush and "sanding" in-between coats with steel wool.

I love how you modified the plan! It looks awesome, and I like how you decorated it as well! :)

Beautiful. We are planning on building this as well and wanted a smaller version. Can you by chance share your measurements? What size TV do you have on the console? Thanks!

I love this one, just wondering what size your console ended up being? I am going to do one that will end up being 60 inch in length and I am tossing up whether to add the centre leg or leaving it out?
