When you walked through the door of our 100+ year old house, you pretty much immediately walked into our dining room. For the first few years, we had a very large vintage secretary desk along the wall that we used to collect our mail, throw our keys on, and keep our junk.
This secretary desk was so big and so chunky, it took up so much space. And in our 1064 square foot home, every square foot was precious. So we relocated the desk and needed to find something to work in its place. We started combing through Pinterest, Houzz, and many other DIY websites to get ideas on what we might like, and finally landed on something we both agreed on. We had to modify the plans a bit to fit the style of our house, but it didn't prove to be too difficult!
Dane had taken the day off, and so I left him with the modifications while I went off to work. By the time I got home (about 9 hours later), he was finished! He was so proud of his first build, he listed it online and received SO MANY inquiries almost immediately.
Since then, we still make these console tables every weekend. And I do mean every. single. weekend. It's both a blessing and a curse. Almost 98% of our clients choose the original color palette: White Base with Special Walnut Stain. However, we do have that 2% who will ask for something custom, and those are the ones I look forward to. I personally love green and think a nice Jade would look Ah-maze balls.
How about you? What color combo would you do? Let us know in the comments below!
