What dimensions is the console table?
The solid wood farmhouse console stands a regular 30″ superior and is 12 three/4″ deep and 66″ lengthy — but the length is adjustable! (See beneath)
Is the console table length adjustable?
Indeed, that is a single of the best attributes of this quick Diy farmhouse entry table! The shelves and major are very easily modified to no matter what length you’d like, from about 48″ lengthy (bare minimum) up to a whole 12-foot 2×12 board! (or even a 16′ board!)
For an additional lengthy 12′ console, or any console above about 8 toes, I’d advise introducing yet another X leg part or two for assistance.
If you just have to have an quick facet table, a single X leg foundation is rather sturdy with a shorter tabletop, far too! Just skip the middle shelf (but you may well however want to put in the assistance for included security).

I have not ever attempted this but it is an strategy — and that is the best part of Diy! 🙂
How to Complete a Double X Wooden Farmhouse Console Table
Soon after making the console table, fill the pocket holes with filler and enable to dry. Sand the legs and shelves right up until smooth, ending with 120-one hundred fifty grit sandpaper.
For a darker modern farmhouse console table like the inspiration picture, spray paint the foundation black or oil-rubbed bronze (like the fake metallic foundation on this reclaimed wood espresso table). Then stain the shelves. For a truly custom-on the lookout table, try out layering an aged gray stain with yet another stain (like this Diy modern farmhouse console table).
For a white and wood two tone farmhouse appear, I initially primed the X legs, then painted them white. I applied pre-stain conditioner to the major and shelves, then stained them with Rustoleum Carrington. You’ll want to guard the stained wood with a major coat, like polyurethane.
Once all of the complete dried, I slid the major and shelves into place and that is it! Done!
