DIY Rustic TV Console


I am so excited to share our DIY TV console with you guys! We have had this console done
for a few weeks now, & I really do not know what took me so long to show you what
my husband created. There are these days that my husband puts on a flannel &
a tool belt & he heads out into the garage & creates these beautiful pieces of art like this
TV console. I can’t get over how smart & how fast he can build something like this
I am a little envious of his skills with a saw, but thankful to have a wonderful teacher
to teach me his DIY skills. Building furniture & woodworking is his hobby & I’m
perfectly fine with that. I guess this is reason #567858 why we were meant to be together.


I plan on putting up instructions for this TV console soon, but in all reality
my husband actually went off inspiration pictures & really made his own
way around while building it. The reason we wanted to build our entertainment center
was because we needed an extra long console due to how long the wall was
that the tv was on. All other consoles looked too small compared to the massive wall.
We also are not mounting the television at this time due to having to put our house
on the market soon {more on that later!} So no wood floors and TV mounting in
this house, but wait until we get into the next place, I may go DIY crazy!
You can’t really tell from the photos, but this is one large piece of
furniture. & heavy. ask my chiropractor ;)







As far as styling this lovely TV console, I keep moving stuff around as always &
it certainly isn’t “finished”, but I like the eclectic look it has right now & that cozy
antique quilt is my favorite find as of lately. The stain on this piece is Special Walnut
by Minwax which is the same stain used {here} on our DIY headboard.

I’m seriously the proudest wife ever & I love that I get to look at his work
daily & that it’s a huge focal point in our home. I’ll stop, but he’s pretty awesome.
What do you think of our DIY TV console? Have you ever built a TV console before?
I can’t wait to see you other changes in our living room, it’s all changing so fast &
I can’t wait to show you around! Even better, just come over for a cup of coffee in our
cozy living room, we love it here & we know you would too! I would love to hear from
you in the comments below, on the facebook page {here} or find me on instagram {here}.

    That is absolutely gorgeous! Applause to your husband!

  5. That is amazing! I love it so much…the rustic wood with the new technology of the TV is the best!! Your husband does great work.

    • Thank you Sonya! & yes, the tv to me is an eye sore, but I think this beauty actually distracts from that.. win! finally ;) haha thanks for your sweet comment!

  6. Love it!!

  7. Love this! It’s absolutely stunning =)

  8. Stunning! I love it!

  9. It turned out wonderful! Can’t wait for a tutorial and to hear more details about the new place!

  10. SO beautiful. I love everything about it, but those X-sides are especially calling my name :) What a great focal point for the room, and your styling looks great!

    • Thank you so much Jennifer! I seriously can’t ever stop looking at it.. I’m so proud of him! & you know me the styling changes once a day, but I’m happy with it for now ;) xx

  12. Wow! It looks like something right out of a magazine! How talented! Gorgeous piece!

  13. It’s beautiful!! Handy mans are awesome.

  14. This is beautiful! I think I’m going to give a simpler version a try. The “X” on the sides is the perfect touch, but I don’t trust myself in making angled cuts. I don’t have a good miter saw it and I am only capable of straight cuts:) I just make my first big piece of furniture recently. Actually, I make four new pallets and turned them into a bed platform. I’d love for you to take a look and tell me what you think.

    You and your blog have been such an inspiration to me! I’m so glad I found the Liz Marie Blog! Thank you for sharing your talent and time with all of us!

    • Wow!! I don’t like auto-correct! I just reread my post above and found sooo many typos. I’m an elementary educator and by the looks of the post above, my students need help! Many apologies, I was so excited when reading your post, I couldn’t wait to comment and share. I’ll be reading and re-reading next time:) “I made……… (not make)!

  15. Awesome! It fits perfectly with the style you have going on in this room. You are lucky to have a hubby who shares you interests and is so talented!

  16. Yes that is pretty awesome! My husband is quite the handy man as well, we are very blessed! :-)
    I am loving rustic in my one too.

  17. I love it, Liz! The stain, the size, the ‘x’ on each end–it’s just beautiful! And, your styling is nice too. Way to put that handy hubby to work!

  18. Cheryl Norman says:

    My poor husband doesn’t know a screwdriver from a hammer (his talents lay elsewhere) He is waiting for me to fix the kitchen facet today so he can make the coffee. The entertainment center your husband made is perfect. Love it. Now let me get to that facet or I’ll never get a cup of coffee. LOL

  19. It’s absolutely beautiful! He does fantastic work… are really Blessed!!!!

  20. I love this and would love something like this for our home. We hve a dresser now as a tv console because it can house all our (tons of) DVDs. So my question is…. Where are yours?

  21. Love it so much, Liz! He did a fabulous job!! xo

  22. You were meant for one another! Both such talents! I love the rustic with the contemporary of the your beautiful flat screen! You must know how blessed you are! Keep up the good work of making your home a beautiful haven for your family!

  23. It’s simply gorgeous, Liz! I love everything about it, especially the fact that your husband made it. That makes it so special to your family!

  24. You are so lucky! My husband is NOT a DIY guy, at all!!! But he is a meterologist, so if you need to know the weather, just give me a buzz. I always have the scoop!

  25. Rosemary says:

    Well why can’t all Marine husbands build useful furniture like this?! I’m a bit jelly :-) lol. I would love an entry table just like it!

  26. OMG…. You are so lucky to have a husband who can build something that gorgeous for you.
    The X’s on the ends just make it the Creme de la Creme of TV Consoles. He could seriously sell those for a nice sum.
    Women would be standing in line to get one of these. You are a fortunate girl indeed. Tks for sharing with us.

  27. I seriously Loveeeeee this! We might need to make one like it for our home! I love how its pretty AND functional! Wow! Aweeeesome!

  28. That is fabulous, I love it!

  29. I love it Liz!!! The table turned out amazing!! I love how you say that is another reason why you and the HUbbs are meant to be. I seriously feel like every day something comes up that makes me think…YEP, I married the right guy!!! We are so much alike…wish we lived closer to hang out :)
    Your house is coming together so awesome!!

  30. Wow – what an amazing job he did – BUT what an amazing job you did styling it!!!
    Great team :)

  44. I love it!!! Adds so much texture and character!!

  56. I LOVE this so much! My husband and I are in the process of building a house and plan to build a lot of furniture. A media console is going to be on our first projects! I look forward to seeing the plans and directions once you post them! It looks so nice.

  57. It is stunning! I love the color. What type of wood did he use?

  58. I just love this console!

    Thanks in advance.

  77. Love this table! Sent my hubby out to get material for it last weekend! But, I was hoping you’d post instructions/dimensions?! I have been looking for a table like this for So long! When do you think you’ll post your instructions?

  78. The color of this table is gorgeous! My boyfriend recently built a table just like this one. I was wondering what stain y’all used? I would love to stain ours this color!

  79. I love this and I’m going to incorporate this into my upcoming bookshelves of antique heart pine.
    I have this ongoing love affair with old wood and there is a large pile sitting on my back porch at the moment along with a big pile of antique lath turned columns salvaged from an old hotel that burned down. How lucky you are to have such a handy and artistic husband. The simple lines show case the antique wood.

  80. I think she said it was Walnut by Minwax

  81. Hi Liz,

    Have you had the chance to put together the instructions for the TV Console build your husband made? I love this design. I would to start a new project, but I haven’t come across the spec’s yet. Did I miss them or are the they still not posted?? Thank you, Marcy

  82. Not to be rude, but this is a repost. Ana White did the exact same plans for this table last year in May. She actually did a whole collection including the console table, a side table, and a coffee table. The only difference is that you took out the front 2×4 that is used for support, but really, its the same table and I know this because I made it last year and mine looks exactly like yours cause I left out that front 2x4s too.
    You can find the original plans here, and they already have the instructions.

  83. Thankfulness to my father who informed me on the topic of this website,
    this website is genuinely remarkable.

  84. Hi there!
    Would love to try and build one ourselves and was wondering if a tutorial post been written? Found this via Pinterest and love it. Also, any idea how much the lumber for this cost? Thank you! It’s so beautiful! We have a very low console right now with a 18 month old curious crawling boy. This would be more than ideal for beautiful things up high and toys down low!

  85. Great Job Galaxy Design I was downtown in the fabric district and I had gone from shop to
    shop and nobody really wanted to wait on me. The first thing you want to mount blinds inside the frame, except for
    the position of the secondary carrier, hold the
    pull cord so that the joins can be covered.

  86. I love your tv console and would love measurements and type of wood used. Going for a modern rustic and adore your decore.

  87. Beautiful work! It’s so nice to have crafty and amazing husbands! I was wondering what stain you used. Thanks

  88. That is the rustic x from

  92. I stumbled on your site looking for a TV solution. As my blog states, your hubby\s creation will mesh well witht he coffee tables I refurbed from the idea my wife found @
    Thanks for the inspiration. If interested, with this year’s NHL Winter Classic having the Toronto Maple Leafs & Detroit Red Wings facing off, perhaps we should have a “lumber face-off” of some sort. Let me know what you think.

  97. Hi! Love this table! Do you have the instructions/details yet?

  98. Do you know the shade of stain used on this? I’m going to tackle something similar soon…. I think… I hope.. I just need to say “I can do math! I can do math!” over and over again until I believe it and learn how to measure the angles from X frame I want. lol.

  99. This is the right web site for anyone who wants to find
    out about this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
