I’ve long been in love with this table from Ana White. Love, love, love the Xs.
I love console tables in general, but I don’t really have a place to put a nice long one like this. Well I didn’t. Then I did a little master bedroom refresh, and when my sister suggested I put something longer under the TV, I immediately envisioned this table. I finally had an excuse to make it!
I did need to customize it though. I went through several iterations of the design… as I was building it. To start, I shortened it, because the length was just too long to fit on my wall. Then I decided I didn’t want a middle shelf because quite frankly, I didn’t have anything to put on it.
I originally had a stretcher across the bottom, and then at the last minute, as in after I’d already started filling nail holes and painting, I decided to add onto the stretcher to make it a shelf. I needed to hide some of my TV cords, so I bought a woven basket from TJMaxx and a blanket, and viola… cords somewhat hidden. One day I hope to thread the cords through the wall and back out at cable box and DVD player… one day.
For now though, I’m enjoying my new table, and having a place to put some pics and decor, like this beautiful, free desktop wallpaper I printed. Be Still… perfect for a bedroom.
