If you been with me for a while you know that I am feeling the modern farmhouse genre vibes. I’m obsessed with all things Joanna Gaines. Oh, and you too Chip. Don’t know what I’m talking about? You can’t tell me that you never watched Fixer Upper. Well if you love the MF vibe I suggest you sit your booty down and binge. There is one episode, in particular, that is by far my favorite. It’s the one called The Hot Sauce House. In this episode, Joanna transforms a Fixer-Upper into a rustic Italian beauty. One piece in the bathroom caught my eye and that was the bathroom vanity. And this past spring I entered the One Room Challenge and wanted to redo our powder room downstairs. Well, what better way to take that bathroom as my inspiration for the remodel. And the one-piece I am excited about is the Fixer Upper inspired console table.
Oh man, the transformation is crazy. All done by ourselves. To see how it went, go to the blog post here. If your not sure what the ORC is I do explain it there so make sure you check it out.
So back to the topic at a hand. The inspired console table. Originally it was the sink vanity in the design, but for my space, I didn’t need one, but I still wanted the look of that piece in my space. So I took it upon myself to tinker with the measurements and make it fit my space. Behold, the Hot Sauce House Console Table. You can also find printable plans on the furniture plans page.

I love to rip down boards to use in my pieces. It saves money for sure. If you buy a lot of the actual size you need at your local lumbar yard the price starts to add up add up. Usually what I do is add the width of each piece needed plus the 1/8” (blade thickness) and that will give the board that I need.
So I decided to make this console with faux drawers. Lord knows your girl don’t need anymore places to hide junk. My poor kitchen already get the brunt of the load, no need to add that to my half bath. However if you do want to make this with actual drawers just make sure that there is a 1/8” all the way around each side of each drawer. Add the side faces to the bottom drawers, make the boxes and add drawer slide hardware.
Lastly was the door pulls. I got these at Hobby Lobby during the time they had the metal stuff for 50% off. But if you want to get the look closer to the original here are some options.
The stain I used was special walnut from Minwax.
