Using wood painted black and real metal casters you can make this media console look just like a high end welded metal piece of furniture without any knowledge of welding or need for an expensive welder! Easily build yourself an industrial media console to update any room in your home! Works great in a living room, bedroom, or entryway!

This DIY media console is the perfect addition to the bedroom overhaul we are in the process of doing, I’m building all the furniture in there and I am super excited about it! So stay tuned in the next few days/weeks (possibly months as slow as I am sometimes…hahaha!) for a few bedroom-related plans!

**Update: I built a beautiful four-poster bed for the room, an industrial nightstand, and made a couple of decor pieces such as a blanket ladder and wall tapestry if you would like to check them out if you are looking for some bedroom inspiration!

Gathering Supplies to Build this DIY Media Console

You know, I wish I knew how to weld and all that fun stuff, but problem is, I don’t!! So I’ll have to fake it until I make it with this wood that looks like metal! Lol! All-n-all the cost of this project totals just under $150 which isn’t bad considering the wheels are almost half the cost, but I just couldn’t resist them and they pretty much make the build! Update: With the current 2022 lumber surge in prices, this will cost around $350 bucks! Still a great bargain considering all furniture in stores has gone up as well!
