If we’re being honest, we’re not the most experienced people when it comes to making furniture. Even though we’ve got all the skills it takes to make simple pieces, we’re just so used to picking up what we need in stores! Recently, however, we decided to use our need for an entryway table as an opportunity to start small in making our own furniture whenever we can from here on out. That’s why we’ve been scouring the Internet for entry and console table tutorials!
1. DIY X-brace console table
Have you long had your eyes peeled for a wooden style entry table but you’d prefer it to have an explicitly farmhouse aesthetic to it rather than just looking rustic? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Rogue Engineer made this impressively simple table that has a distinctly farm inspired X-brace down the centre!
2. Dining table leg entry table
If you’re going to put in the time and effort it takes to make your very own wooden table from scratch, would you prefer to make some element of what you’re doing a venture in upcycling? Well, if you happen to have access to an old dining table that still has perfect quality legs than you have almost everything you need to make this entry console outlined step by step on Nourish and Nestle!
3. DIY barn door console table
If you’re going to make something that’s explicitly farm inspired, would you rather aim for the aesthetic of the barn rather than the traditional farmhouse itself? Well, if you’re feeling up for a little bit of a challenge, then we think you might just be the perfect person to give this tutorial from Ana White, which teaches you how to make sliding barn style doors, a try.
4. Metal and wood X-base console table
Are you actually feeling very enthusiast about this whole idea of building an X-frame table but your home is a lot more industrial inspired than the farmhouse design we showed you earlier? In that case, we have a feeling you might get along a little better with something like this metal and wood X-base console table outlined in clear detail on Bower Power.
5. Mod plywood console table
Perhaps the decor aesthetic of your home is actually a little more mod and minimalist looking and you’d prefer something with a bit more of a kitschy style? Then we have a sneaking suspicion you’ll find this mod plywood design outlined in full, neat detail on Jen Woodhouse a little more precise to what you’re looking for.
6. Affordable reclaimed wood entry table
Have you actually been scrolling through our list looking for something more simple and affordable not because it’s a specific style choice but because you’re new to the DIY game and looking for something basic that you feel is manageable and won’t cost you a lot? Then we’re pretty sure The Happier Homemaker has just what you’re looking for with this reclaimed wood design.
7. Modern DIY console table
Just in case we really caught your attention with the idea of making something a little more modern looking and minimalist, but the plywood look we showed you earlier just doesn’t quite fit with the decor in the rest of your room? Then perhaps you’d get along a little better with this linear, clean white design featured in full detail on Saffron Avenue instead!
8. Wood and industrial pipe leg table
Have we really still got you thinking about the idea of making an entryway table that’s a lot more industrial inspired in its look but you just don’t think the metal X-base design we showed you earlier is quite what you were picturing? Then perhaps you’d prefer to make something like this design from Handmaid Tales that’s made from wood and painted piping instead!
9. Painted reclaimed pallet entry table
Perhaps the idea you’ve liked the best so far is the idea of creating your entryway table from something upcycled but you just haven’t seen the design that quite works for you so far? Well, if you’ve ever been a fan of reclaimed pallet projects, then we think you’ll get a real kick out of the way Kleinworth & Co. painted theirs and used the whole thing, tipped on its side, as the base of their otherwise very simple and rustic looking new table.
10. DIY wooden scroll leg entry table
Did we actually catch your attention the best so far with the idea of making an entryway table using some kind of fancy wooden leg, but you don’t have access to an old dining table to upcycle pieces from that? Then we’d suggest looking at this scrolled leg table design outlined step by step on Her Tool Belt instead!
11. DIY fretwork entry table
Maybe you’ve actually been scrolling through our list hoping to find something a little more decorative to suit your otherwise very patterned and visual space but nothing has had quite enough detail for you so far? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how The Created Home made this extremely fun table design using fretwork like the kind you’d usually put in the yard in make your own garden trellis or space divider.
12. Stylishly weathered farmhouse entry table
Just in case you’re still looking for something very simple indeed but you’re also not sure a natural, stained, or reclaimed wood finish will quite suit the rest of your scheme, here’s a painted and weathered design that you might get along with a little better! Take a closer look at Shanty 2 Chic to see how they got the right finish.
13. IKEA hack entry half table
Perhaps you’re actually not entirely sure that you’re ready to handle building your own full furniture piece just yet, but you usually are pretty confident when it comes to putting pre-made pieces of furniture together? Well, you can create unique pieces that way too if you’re willing to get a little creative! This design from Hey Let’s Make Stuff that teaches you how to make a slim half-table console using IKEA hack techniques is the perfect example of what we mean.
14. DIY sawhorse entry table
In the interest of making sure that you have all kinds of options made from combined elements to choose from, here’s yet another alternative in the world of reclaimed wood and upcycling for you to consider! Check out this tutorial from Woodshop Diaries to learn how they made it happen using two old fashioned sawhorses.
15. Flattened rustic entry table
Perhaps you really liked the space efficient design of the half-table entryway console we showed you earlier but you’re also not sure that a modern looking piece made from white IKEA elements will really suit your otherwise rustic home scheme? Then we’re convinced this tutorial from MomsLife1011 that shows you how to make something similar from scratch using naturally finished wood will suit you a little bit better.
