DIY Outdoor Console Table

Y’all I love a good upcycle. I believe that everyone and every piece of furniture deserves a second chance. I love giving old furniture a second life or turning furniture into something brand new.


When Matt and I redid our garage and our work station, we had a miter saw table and a work bench that we were not going to use any more. Matt had a great idea to convert the miter saw table to a potting table. Check out how I did that in this post. Then we had the work bench table left, so I decided I was going to turn that into an outdoor console table.


Here is the table I was working with. It had a ton of potential and could have been used for many things, but a console table was just what we needed.


If you don’t have an extra table lying around to convert to a console table, here are some tables console tables that you can build yourself.

Once you have your table, it is time to start decorating and turning your outdoor console into a part of your home. The first thing I did, was stained the table. I used BEHR Cordovan Brown Semi-Transparent stain to protect the wood and turn into a piece of furniture. Look how great it looks! This stain is great because it is waterproof, so it will protect the wood from the outdoor elements.
