I have been searching for over a year to find the perfect console to fit below our TV. In our tiny house, this space is the first thing you see as you walk in the front door. I wanted something that could hold a lot of stuff (cable box, books, etc.) and also serve as an entryway piece (a spot to drop your keys and mail). However it needed to be narrow enough that it didn't take up too much walking space. Also, most importantly, it had to be a bargain! The hunt was unsuccessful. Everything I found was either not the right size or too expensive. So my handy man (AKA my fiance Ryan) decided to put his skills and my design ideas to the test. Together we created this masterpiece:
We built the entire thing together. The most important fact that I must add: We never argued throughout the entire process! You know this is unusual if you have tried to build something with a significant other! :)
The piece looks very Mid-century, but I like mixing styles, so I then added super traditional legs. I used a gray stain and finished it in a high gloss. It is exactly what I wanted, and the grand total was $150!
If you are interested in something similar or have your own vision of a piece of furniture, we would love to work with you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
