Decorating a console table depends on two factors - decor theme of your home and the placement. When it comes to a decor theme you need to be very clear about the same. Before you start the process of placing home decor items on a table ensure that you have chalked out a rough plan. The best way to go about it is by jotting down what all needs to be placed on a table. If the table is placed in a foyer or a hallway then it will be decked up in a manner to facilitate easy access to day-to-day items. When placed in a living or a dining room the console table is used for placement of decor items or decanters.
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
Interior decoration trends are rapidly changing inspiring and consuming. These are like creative riots that are leashed on to just one aspect- quenching the thirst for a visual delight. Every frill and every curve lead to an oasis of beauty that devours an individual's imagination. One spark of imagination results in the creation of decor themes that were never even imagined. Playing on the same tunes the decoration of furniture plays a pivotal role in rounding off a decor theme. Start with an ever-so-gracious console table that graces an empty wall and brings life to otherwise ignored spaces. A table is a like a dark knight of the furniture world. It stands still in one corner while playing an important role in the whole setup. The table manages to make its importance felt in numerous ways. It acts like a memory boat with an array of photo frames sailing on its top surface. It becomes the centre of attraction when placed under a classy artwork or a chunky mirror. Sometimes it hides behind a sofa to create space for accent pieces.
The story of life these days is somewhat like this "Your job keeps you occupied all day and sometimes even at the night; your busy schedule with family and friends doesn't permit you to make time for yourself. Your life is a complete mess of things that you want to do but aren't able to do and things you are doing but don't want to do. Your life has become a shamble of the necessary and unnecessary substances and no matter how hard you try things won't get better unless there is something that can console you give you the happiness and uplift your life."However finding something like this is close to impossible; but that doesn't mean you should give up.
Cracking. One way to make wood console tables look old is to give them a cracked finish. Think about the look of an old table pulled out of a farm house after generations. The paint is starting to crack and break away from the surface. It used to be it took a lot of work to create this look but not anymore. There are 'crackle paints' or crackle additives to add to paint that will make this finish happen very easily. Often all you have to do is apply 1-2 coats and you will have created an antique look with ease.
A console table is a bit of a riddle. It can be a hall table or a side table but is generally not an end table. It can be a sofa table or a coffee table or accent table but not a dining room table. And never ever is it a mathematical table! To solve the mystery of this extremely versatile item a general guideline for a console table is that it is usually a rectangular piece of furniture that ranges from 2 to 4 feet in length and stands about waist high. Some console tables may be half-moon shaped or round but the most commonly recognized shape is a long rectangle.
