$25 Console Table with Free Plans!

March 30, 2015

Hey guys and gals. Happy Monday to you! I have got something to share with you today that I think you are going to like. A $25 console table. Yeah, you read that right a console table for $25!!! I have wanted a new console table for quite some time now, but all the ones I found and fell in love with were in the $150-$350 price range. If the table is good quality, that is not too much to pay, but more than I was willing to pay for one, so I decided to come up with my own plan and design for waaaaaayyyyyy less. I have plans you can print out and build your own, but I will walk you through the build step by step. Pictures are more fun anyway don’t you think?  Let’s get to building.

Click on the picture or the link below to get the plans to build your own $25 console table!

The first thing you will need to do is cut your boards to length. Cutting sizes are in the plans. Here is a pic of the boards you will need for this table.

Next, drill your pocket holes which you will use to attach the table together. I use the Kreg pocket hole jig system. It is the fastest and strongest way I have found to attach furniture together. You can find them here on Amazon. Here is a pic of where the pocket holes need to be drilled.

Now on to the assembly. First, attach the 11.5″ boards inside of the 29″ boards to form the table legs like this:

Repeat for the other leg until both are fully assembled.

Almost done! Now time to finish. Sand table completely to remove all of the rough parts of the wood and any markings by the manufacturer. I chose to stain my table, but you could just as easily decide to paint your table. Once the stain was dry, I covered the table with a coat of polyurethane and let dry.

Here are some pics of the finished table.

I still can’t believe this table only cost $25 in lumber, it just blows my mind. I hope you enjoyed following along with me on this build and now it’s your turn to try it! Thanks for spending some time with me.

    How many screws and what sizes did you use?

    • sawdusttosequins August 15, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      Hi Yanette! I used 28 2.5″ pocket hole screws to build the table and the top and 4 2″ wood screws to attach the table top.

    Hello! This is amazing! I am hoping to make a narrow table like this for my bar stools in my breakfast nook! Would you mind telling me the dimensions of this table? Thank you!

    • sawdusttosequins August 15, 2016 at 3:31 pm

      Sure Kelly! This table is 4 ft. wide, 16.5″ deep, and 30″ tall. I hope this helps. Have fun building your table and thank you for the kind words!

    Great table. I followed your directions and made one for my stairs landing. I accidentally purchased all 2×6’s, so mine is a bit chunkier, but I love it! Thanks for providing great plans directions!! If I knew how to attach a photo, I’d post one 🙂

      That’s awesome Grace! I’m glad you liked the plans. I bet your table looks amazing!

    Could I build this without drilling the pocket holes?

    • sawdusttosequins December 16, 2016 at 8:00 pm

      Absolutely! Screws would work just fine. For a more finished look, just use wood filler to fill in the screw holes and finish with your favorite paint or stain.
