Farmhouse design and style X’s are just about everywhere (like this Television set console stand, easy aspect desk, and Dutch barn door infant gate) and an easy way to Diy your own farmhouse home furniture design and style.

I altered a number of things up from the unique inspiration.

  • I produced the legs a little thicker for a chunkier seem
  • The length is adjustable — just lower your boards to the length you want! I selected 66″ for my entry desk.
  • The depth is considerably less: I required a slim desk for the entry hall, and this employs just a 2×12 for the cabinets to make it easy.

What sizing is the console desk?

The strong wood farmhouse console stands a normal 30″ large and is twelve three/4″ deep and 66″ prolonged — but the length is adjustable! (See below)

Is the console desk length adjustable?

Of course, which is one particular of the best characteristics of this easy Diy farmhouse entry desk! The cabinets and top rated are easily modified to whatsoever length you’d like, from about 48″ prolonged (bare minimum) up to a full twelve-foot 2×12 board! (or even a 16′ board!)

For an additional prolonged 12′ console, or any console over about eight toes, I’d recommend including one more X leg portion or two for help.

If you just need an easy aspect desk, one particular X leg foundation is pretty durable with a shorter tabletop, also! Just skip the middle shelf (but you may well nonetheless want to put in the help for extra stability).

Is the desk moveable?

Though this desk is not made to be moveable, the cabinets can be still left unattached, so yes, it can be moved easily in quite a few pieces. It would be a good reward desk for a get together or wedding ceremony reception — and our  moveable wood wedding ceremony arch would be a good addition, also!

If you’d like to use this Diy wood console desk for functions and will be going it regularly, you could check out utilizing flush mount brackets like this on the X-leg cross pieces so it takes up considerably less space. I have not at any time attempted this but it’s an plan — and which is the best section of Diy! 🙂

How to Finish a Double X Wooden Farmhouse Console Table

Following creating the console desk, fill the pocket holes with filler and allow to dry.  Sand the legs and cabinets until eventually sleek, finishing with 120-150 grit sandpaper.

For a darker contemporary farmhouse console desk like the inspiration image, spray paint the foundation black or oil-rubbed bronze (like the faux steel foundation on this reclaimed wood coffee desk). Then stain the cabinets. For a truly tailor made-seeking desk, check out layering an aged gray stain with one more stain (like this Diy contemporary farmhouse console desk).

For a white and wood two tone farmhouse seem, I initial primed the X legs, then painted them white.  I applied pre-stain conditioner to the top rated and cabinets, then stained them with Rustoleum Carrington.  You’ll want to shield the stained wood with a top rated coat, like polyurethane.

As soon as all of the end dried, I slid the top rated and cabinets into location and which is it!  Done!
