Recently some good friends of our had their basement finished and bought a new flat screen and sectional sofa. After having a few gathering there we realized that the sectional by itself just wasn’t enough seating. To add some more seating we came up with the idea of building a long counter height console table to go behind the sectional and act as a bar.

Nevertheless, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and what’s even better is the price tag of only about $50 in materials. Plus if you want to build one for a smaller sofa or loveseat it can be easily adjusted to do so. Oh and if you are looking for bar stools to go with it, check out this awesome deal on Amazon.

    Great project! Instructions were on point. My husband and I took on this project. We shorten the table to 76 inches long. We are so impress on how this bar table came out. Now the decision is stain or paint. LOVE IT!!!!!
