Hi! I’d love for you to follow me on Pinterest Her Tool Belt and if you love instagram, you can keep up with me there too!
Sometimes you need to have something stylish to go behind your sofa, even if you don’t have room for a full size console table. I saw this console table idea while looking through Houzz and those arches really grabbed my attention. (I know…big surprise 🙂 ).
To build the table out of pine will cost you about $30 in lumber. The design is fairly narrow (top is 11 1/4″ wide), so it won’t take up too much space. You can easily customize the table dimensions to fit your space. If you don’t have the tools to cut the curves on the ‘feet’, you can simply cut a 45 deg miter on the ‘toe’ and still have plenty of style.
I have teamed up with Build Something for this build plan. Build Something is a new(ish) site that is a great resource for woodworkers and DIY’ers, that may not have a site of their own, to share the plans they’ve created. You can grab the free plans for this narrow sofa table here.
You can grab the plans for the cute scalloped planter box here.

Amy another amazing piece! Keep at it because they are all beautiful. (And the scalloped edge on the box is over the top cute!)
What color stain is that? It looks great.
Thanks Greg, it’s Rustoleum/Varathane Carrington.

Hi! I love this table. I tried using carrington stain. But my piece came out looking like a zebra. I used minwax pre-stain could this be the reason why? Or does it depend on the grain pattern on the wood.
Hi James, I would bet it is the grain in your wood. If you’re using pine or white wood it’ll soak in the stain in some parts and not others. After applying normal stain, I’ve had luck using Minwax polyshades (like bombay) to help even out the ‘zebra’ look. The polyshades has a polyurethane mixed in and it kind of acts like a toner and evens out the look. Hope that helps.
Hi do you have a video showing how to build this table. Looked at the plans but jus a little unclear on how to make the arches. Thanks! 🙂
Love this table!!! How did you make the arch
I used a bandsaw to cut the arch. They plans for this table are on https://www.buildsomething.com/plans/P72023197E502A497/NarrowSofaTable
