How To Make A Paver Console

DIY Projects Jul 26, 2022

I’ve been wanting a console table for the studio for a while, but haven’t really wanted to spend hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on it. So, of course I was going to try to make one!

A midweek stop in my favourite demolition yard yielded a $10 slimline wooden door, and after thinking for a little bit, I realised I could make a console table using it! But what to use for legs?! Once again the Bunnings landscaping department came to my rescue with $1.79 cement pavers. A coat of terracotta paint, a little bit of creative stacking and here it is!

MATERIALS YOU NEED

HOW TO MAKE A PAVER CONSOLE

1

I began this project by painting the cement pavers with a terracotta paint. I'd suggest using a roller and then doing any touch ups with a small paint brush. 

2

While the cement pavers were drying I decided to also paint the door with that same terracotta paint. I contemplated painting it a different colour. But I decided using the same colour would create a more cohesive look.

3

Once the cement pavers were fully dry, I went ahead and applied the liquid nails to one side.

Most of the inspiration I pulled for this project just stacked single pavers on top of one another for the legs, you could definitely do this. However, I decided to stick together three pavers to create one large cube. I felt like this added a bit more detail and dimension to the design. 

5

After the paver cubes had dried, I measured the correct distance my two console legs would need to sit. Then, I spent some time playing around with how I wanted them stacked. Once I was happy with the way they looked I stuck them all together with some more liquid nails.

After the cement pavers were stacked I added a bit more liquid nails to the top paver cube and popped on the painted slimline door.

Like what you see? Or just want to save it for later?

Pin It

Voila!

A layer of paint, some glue and some creative stacking and here it is! Seriously easy and with a total cost of $52 I couldn’t be happier.
