Table Console

this is a great project for anyone on a budget, or for those of us that get a thrill out of a great deal! time to hit up the garage sales and thrift stores- your mission is to find a round table that has a broken or missing leg. you should be able to score a great price on the damaged table, and transform it into a front entry piece! can't find a damaged table? well, purchase a cheaper functioning table and make two console tables; place them in different places in your home. i thought this was a very clever idea, worthy of sharing!

here is what you do:

1. Unscrew the extension mechanism from the bottom of the table. Remove the part of the table you won't be using.

2. Sand the remaining part, then prime and paint it.

3. Nail or screw a two-by-two-inch piece of wood to the wall at the height of the tabletop so that the edge of the table rests on the wood support.

4. Screw through the top of the table to the wood support; fill the holes with wood filler, and paint over them.
