$4 Console Table

I told you a few weeks back that the hubs was working on some built-ins...well, he has been doing a great job on them!  Since he was in the building mood, he decided to make a console table with all the scrap MDF he had laying around to hold extra toys. We found our inspiration Here..there were plans, but we didn't have enough MDF to make the exact same table, so there was some improv building. The reason it's a $4 table is because I had to make a quick trip to Lowes to get one 1x3 board. 
I helped a little(held things in place, painted, moral support), but he was definitely the brains behind the job:o) I'm so proud of my little handy man:o)
The canvas baskets came from T.J. Maxx. 
The rug is from Marshalls.
I found this cute little owl and the sign at Marshall's too.
 Lamps and lamp shades(clearance find) from Walmart.
 And here are the beginnings of the built-ins. We recycled our entertainment center, and attached it to the wall. Then the hubs made the window seats. He finished it out with trim across the bottom. Eventually there will be more added on, and the whole thing painted white, but right now he needs to focus on his thesis.
 Hasn't he done a fantastic job?!? 
 I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. We have ours filled with food, football, friends and doesn't get much better than that!
