Choose a Console Table
Any console table with extra long legs that can be painted will do.
Measure for Shelves
Using a measuring tape, determine the distances between all four of the table's legs and write them down on a sheet of paper.
To create the first shelf, draw four lines, in the shape of a rectangle, that equal the length of the measurements in the previous step onto a sheet of smooth, paint-grade plywood.
Serve up an extra helping of eye candy with bold, graphic wallpaper on dining room walls.
