How to make a console table
Photo: Thomas J. Story

Create a console table

Turn castoff bedside tables into a stylish console. 

To make this one, we removed the drawer handles, lightly sanded all surfaces, and applied one coat of primer and three coats of Benjamin Moore’s high-gloss Bunny Gray paint (2124-50).

We painted the tabletops with a chevron pattern using a stencil fashioned from 1- and 2-in.-wide painter’s tape.
