I’ve always liked a lot of the mid-century modern furniture but not the stuff that was too over the top. When I designed this media console I kept that in mind. The angled and tapered legs added that subtle mid-century modern vibe without doing too much.
We didn’t know how we were going to finish it until after the fact and when Jamie came up with the two tone idea we knew that was it. The lower back box appears to be almost floating and I really like how it makes the legs and top really pop. Plus you can build this one for around only $40! That being said, I hope you enjoy these plans.
