From Wednesday February 10th:
Finally off to a good start on the console table I am building.
The table will hold business cards, a guest sign-in book, maybe post cards, fliers, the kind of stuff artists use for self promotion.
I have considered boring a hole in the back board, to feed a power chord through so one of the compartments could conceal some charging cables for phones and laptops.
The pieces are just cut and sanded. I was inspired by a leaning design I saw on Pinterest, attributed to “And Then Design” in the UK, I believe.
The leaning design is really cool, but I want the versatility of moving it around, so mine will have proper legs and a back to the inside.
I haven’t decided about finishing it yet, but part of it will be stained to match the rest of the dark woodwork, and the other part of it will be painted white – most likely the legs- to match the walls.
