FURNITURE ON A DIME 💙 BEST console/sofa table for $15 (no skill required)

FURNITURE ON A DIME 💙 BEST console/sofa table for $15 (no skill required)

Hey, guys! You seem to love this series, so today I am showing you how to make a solid wood console table for just $15. This DIY requires NO skill. Similar items online are upwards of $200 so it’s crazy how quickly you can make something similar on a dime!

💙 MATERIALS:

Four 8 feet furring strips ($1.98 each) and have them cut in store as follows (this is free):
Four 8″ pieces
Four 30″ pieces
Four 50″ pieces
Top piece cut to 10″ x 54″, usually they come in 6′ lengths for about $6 (I prefer 1 inch thick here, up to you).

Total cost of supplies is about $15. I used a small amount of Dark Walnut Stain and once that dried, used a Polycrlic finish (2 coats) over the project to help protect it! You need a VERY small amount of both!

    I just put a 30 inch clock on the wall and am wanting a sofa table under it. I’m considering making one instead of buying one. This one looks easy because I have no skills at making furniture.

    I swear I would just use Gorilla wood glue 🤣

    Hello…I ❤️ your videos. I’m ready to build my console table. The description is 30 inches but you stated in the video that the wood was 32 inches? Can you clarify before I head to the hardware store? Thank you 😊

    If you are seeing this in 2021 make sure you follow this dimensions because I tried to use her dimensions and everything was wrong 😓 so I spend extra money.

    Here are the dimensions
    Form this 2-in x 2-in-x-8-ft you will need
    Four 30”
    Four 8”
    Four 50”
    Top you need 12” x 54”

  7. Claudii Seyer on August 22, 2022 at 4:40 am

    Could you type here the type of screws you bought?

  8. Camella Dixon on August 22, 2022 at 4:40 am

  14. Trish Dolan on August 22, 2022 at 4:47 am

    Since you used the 2" fir strips is it sturdy enough to use as a table? Or is it wobbly?

  15. Linda Pitre on August 22, 2022 at 4:49 am

    This is just what I need! Can you please tell me what the dimensions of the finished project? And furring strips come in different sizes, do you know what size you used? Thanks for the awesome video!

  16. ThisWorldIsNotMyHome 7 on August 22, 2022 at 4:49 am

    Furring strips here are so badly twisted you can’t do anything with them.

  37. Donna DiBiase on August 22, 2022 at 5:12 am

    I do a little woodworking and I’m having trouble figuring out your support piece. 8" + 1.5 + 1.5 (legs)=11". Your top piece is only 10 which isn’t really ten. What am I missing??

  38. Harry.T84 on August 22, 2022 at 5:13 am

    How thick is the board that goes on top anyone know??

  39. Angel Believes on August 22, 2022 at 5:16 am

  47. VR Ne on August 22, 2022 at 5:29 am

    You are awesome! How did you get your table top side edges so flat? Just by sanding or did your home depot strip off the edges for you? My home depot does the cross cuts but wouldn’t strip off the sides so I get a flat sides.

  48. Nakimuli Prosperity Network on August 22, 2022 at 5:30 am

    How much weight can you put on it?

  49. Krystal Smith on August 22, 2022 at 5:32 am

  50. Lisa Smith on August 22, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Catherine, just want to let you know there is a little discrepancy in your list-to-video supply list. My husband and I are in the process of making this project and hit a little road block. The video states 4 pieces 32” long but the project list states 30” long. Also, the furring strips you purchase in the video states, 1”x2” however the video shows Charlie using 2”x2” pieces.
    Sorry to point this out but just trying to avoid anyone else from hitting the road block.
    Love you and your family and absolutely love your channel. Thanks for all you do!!
    And if no one has told you today, YOU ARE ENOUGH! 😄💕
