Bar Top Console Table

Recently some good friends of our had there basement finished and bought a new flat screen and sectional sofa. After having a few gathering there we realized that the sectional by itself just wasn’t enough seating. To add some more seating we came up with the idea of building a long counter height console table to go behind the sectional and act as a bar.

Nevertheless, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and what’s even better is the price tag of only about $50 in materials. Plus if you want to build one for a smaller sofa or loveseat it can be easily adjusted to do so. Oh and if you are looking for bar stools to go with it, check out this awesome deal on Amazon.

  • Looks good. It also looks super cold. Have you used bar top epoxy before for a top like this? I’ve used it a couple times and always love the results. It’s not difficult but definitely more work than just polyurethane.

  • Awesome…

  • Jeff Breitz

    Great idea, with not too much trouble you could adjust the length and height of it to match the application.

    At the risk of sounding like an overly fussy nerd with too much time on my hands… it should be “their basement”, not “there”. I wouldn’t normally say anything but I thought it might matter to you to make the correction. BTW, love your blog & emails, and am always impressed with your plans that are both easy to follow and sturdy enough to trust. I have a few on my To-Do list for the next rainy day!

    If I wanted to use this leg for a vanity, would I need the stretcher bar? Since the top will be attached to the wall wobbling won’t be an issue. Also which style of joint do you prefer for the “X”.

    What program do you use to create your project plans? I’m still doing all mine by hand with graph paper–need something speedier!
