Malm Inspired Console Table

Last weekend while we were working on some projects I did another simple project for the master bedroom. I mentioned in my mood board as well as my summer to do list that I wanted to create a Malm inspired console table.

It was a really simple wood project. All it took was one 2×12-8′ board. The only cuts are two lengths of 28.5″ for the legs and the rest can be used for the top.

From there it was just a couple pocket holes to attach the legs to the top.

Since I didn’t add any other bracing I was hoping that the pocket hole screws would be enough to hold it all together and keep the table from wobbling back and forth.

Once it was together it was really sturdy. All that I did was fill the holes with putty and sanded it down as much as I had patience for.

Then I used a coat of primer as well as three coats of an off white paint to finish it. It didn’t come out with a perfect finish since it was just an inexpensive board but it did work pretty well.

For about $11 I don’t think I could have gone wrong. Now I have a little space to do some more decorating in the master.

For now I just “shopped my house” and threw together a few accent pieces. As usual I’m sure I’ll find some better things for this table in the future.

Oh hey what’s that behind me? I picked up a new duvet cover a few weeks ago from ikea. Little by little this room is starting to come together.

Has anyone else tried another version of this table or done something similar?
