This Rustic TV Console Table is one of those cases that I wanted to make for so long and always something got in the way. It’s my very first furniture piece ever. I can’t say how much I love it. It might not look like much but to me is a huge accomplishment since I wanted to start creating and working with wood so badly for such a long time. Since I’m crazy in love with the rustic/farmhouse style, I painted it to look as aged and rustic as I possibly could.

On this post I’m sharing specifically how to assemble the rustic TV console table with a quick overview of the painting. I’ll be sharing soon the specific techniques I used on another post otherwise this post would be painfully long.
This rustic tv console table is SO insanely easy to put together. I had something so different in mind when I started this project. We had recently moved to a new apartment and we had NO furniture. I wanted to make our TV console table myself. But we end up buying everything for this project you see now. Things can change so fast but still get something extraordinary. 
The assembling itself took me about an hour to complete. The painting was another thing. It took me about two days between coats and drying time to get the best finish possible.
Once done you will love it. Just decorate and make it yours!!!!

    what size crates did you use and how wide was the top.

  • Sandra Richcreek Sandra Richcreek on Nov 12, 2018

    how tall including wheels. The crates I found were 18 inches tall

    I might be able to do this! The crates are often on sale at Michael's! Do you suppose those crates could support a soapstone top? Yours made me want to use it! Live in the Northeast so I won't be doing it for some months, but I really like what you've done!

    Hi! Can I use crates that come pre-stained in a white or gray? Would the painting steps be different using them? Or is it better to find crates with nothing on them?

      Hi Nancy, It will depend on the finish you want. In my opinion there's no rule of thumbs. So if you find a crate that has already the look you love, go for it and just seal the wood if necessary and you saved time. If the crate is pre-stained and sealed then I would suggest sand it to open wood pores so you can dry brush to the actual finish you want. The good side of having a raw crate (or wood piece of any kind) is that you can do whatever you want with it and make it unique to you but it will depend on what you have in mind. Hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions!
