Custom Built X-Brace Console Table

Good morning friends!  I hope you are staying warm as well as sane durning the hustle and bustle of this season.

Things have been pretty hectic around here as we are trying to move my mom into the cottage we've been building for her on our property.  I don't think we realized just how much work it would take for it all to come together!  But we are near the finish line, as a matter of fact, she's moving in today!  I will be putting together a post highlighting the process of building her cute little Modern Farmhouse Cottage.  Look for that in the near future!

Today, I'm sharing some pictures of a custom console table I just finished and delivered yesterday!  My friend found a table she liked on Pinterest, and Rogue Engineer has detailed plans to work from, including a materials list, cut list, and lot's of pictures!  Thanks Rogue Engineer!  You can find the plans here!  I had to customize mine a bit to fit my clients needs.  So my top is 13"deep, verses the 16" the plan calls for.  I stained it in Ebony, and seal it with three coats of wipe on Polyurethane in satin.

The grains you see with pieces made out of fir and pine are seriously gorgeous!  Sometimes they can have a more simple look, and then you get some really wild sections thrown in there!  A dark stain will really bring all of that character out.

I scored a few weeks ago on this gorgeous floral arrangement from Pottery Barn!  It was part of their Fall Clearance!!  I love the mix of colors and texture in this arrangement.  Just thought I'd share! 

 While out shopping for a new sofa for Mom, I came across this adorable Ferris Wheel picture display.  Does this not remind you of Joanna Gaines's style from Fixer Upper?  I fell in love and my Mom bought it for me as an early Christmas present!  I still need to replace the cute little girl in frames with pictures of my own three cute little girls! :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to each of you!  

Thank you for stopping by!
