My adjustable length console desk is inspired by this beautiful Birch Lane Console Table (no lengthier out there). I love the sleek design and style and X legs.

What dimension is the console desk?

How to Complete a Double X Wood Farmhouse Console Table
Just after creating the console desk, fill the pocket holes with filler and allow for to dry. Sand the legs and shelves right up until clean, finishing with 120-a hundred and fifty grit sandpaper.
For a darker present day farmhouse console desk like the inspiration image, spray paint the foundation black or oil-rubbed bronze (like the faux metallic foundation on this reclaimed wooden coffee desk). Then stain the shelves. For a seriously custom-on the lookout desk, try out layering an aged grey stain with one more stain (like this Do it yourself present day farmhouse console desk).
For a white and wooden two tone farmhouse glance, I initially primed the X legs, then painted them white. I used pre-stain conditioner to the prime and shelves, then stained them with Rustoleum Carrington. You’ll want to guard the stained wooden with a prime coat, like polyurethane.
As soon as all of the finish dried, I slid the prime and shelves into spot and which is it! Done!
