Game Storage Console

3 Materials
4 Hours

Last month I shared a blog post on an easy entryway table I had made a while ago.

As my style changed and things moved around in the house, I moved the entryway table around and it became a catch all.

I found a home for it but it didn’t look quite right and didn’t love the look of all our family games showing, so I thought why not change it up.

This was the before.

I had a spare piece of plywood that I used for the swing down door.

I cut it down to size which was 39”x19.5”.

I then marked where I wanted the hinges.

And drew the circles of where I needed to screw them on.

I attached them to the unit first, and then to the swing down door.

Until I installed the tension brackets inside and the magnet hatch on top, I used a chair to help hold up the plywood.

I then used my graphite color chalk paint and applied two coats.

I painted the inside of the legs for extra detail, and then stained the top and sides.

I knew I wanted a cane detail on the front and I found these trays that worked perfectly.

I added some foam double sided tape on the back along with some glue and ta-da!!!

A beautiful storage console that fits right in.
