Materiels
Step 1:
Assemble the top and bottom shelf of the Rustic V Console by attaching the (11 1/4") 2x2s and the (52 1/8") 2x2s to 1x12 with wood Glue and brad Nails. I used my brad nailer to nail these boards down.

Measure your 2x2s against the 1x12 before making your cuts for the best fit Attach the (11 1/4") 2x2 sides 1st.

Your two shelves should look something like the above picture when you are finished with step 1. 
  
Step 2:
Attach the (32") 2x4 legs to the bottom assembled shelve using 2 1/2" Wood Screws

To attach the 2x4 legs to the shelves, lay two 2x4s on the ground and stand the shelve upright to attach the shelf to the legs. You will screw the 2 1/2" wood screws into the 2x2s straight into the (32") 2x4s.

Then flip the shelf over to attach the shelf to the other 2x4 legs. Then repeat the same process for the top assembled shelf.
Flip shelf and attach the other two legs.
Your console should look similar to the picture below after step 2.

Attach the (11 1/4") 2x2s and the (49 1/8") 2x2s to the top of the console with a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System with a 1 1/2" setting using 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws along with Wood Glue.

Step 5:
Add X braces to sides of the console using wood Glue and 2" Brad Nails.  For this console my angle cuts were made at approx. 36 degrees. For the best fit, measure your wood pieces against the console, measure and then cut.

As seen here, I am putting the 2x2 up against the console; I then mark a line from the back and just make my cut from that. It makes its a lot easier to cut the X to the right fit.

Once I make the cut for my longer x brace piece and secure that down, I use the same technique for the smaller x pieces and fit them into place with wood Glue and 2" Brad Nails.

The best part about this project is that it didn't take a whole lot of time and it was fairly cheap. Sounds like a win win to me.
