Making A Rug Console

Home DIY Aug 11, 2023

I’ve felt so inspired by textured furniture lately and have been wanting to have a go at making my own.

When I unexpectedly found these mini rugs at Bunnings I had the best idea to make them in to a console. By using only 3 simple materials – these rugs, some cardboard cylinders and a piece of pine – I was able to make a beautifully textured rug console. So simple and easy, yet so effective!


  • 4 x Mini Rugs
  • Cardboard cylinder (cut into two 75cm lengths)
  • A piece of Pine
  • A Staple gun
  • Staples
  • Glue

How to make a rug console:


I started by cutting down the cardboard cylinder to console height (75 cm) using a jigsaw and then laid them down on top of a rug each so that the stripes on the rug were running horizontally. 


I then stapled down the edge of the rug using a staple gun and rolled the cylinder over the rest of the rug until the whole cylinder was covered by the rug. I proceeded to fold under the edge of the rug, and then stapled it down, ensuring that all of the carboard was covered. 


After this, I laid down the other 2 rugs so that the stripes were running vertically and matched up the colour of the stripe in the middle (you may have to trim one rug down a little bit). I then placed the piece of pine on top and pulled over the edges of the rug, stapling it down to the underside of the pine. Finally, I glued the legs on to the top piece.

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