Paule Vienne Console Table March 06th, 2018 - 09:52:54
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.
Console tables are so diverse and available in such a wide selection of designs sizes colors and shapes that it can sometimes be difficult to define the difference between a console table and a sofa table. For those of you who are unsure exactly what they are the definition is really rather vague they are defined as small tables often narrow in shape supported by either two or four legs leaving the decision of whether the table you are looking at is a sofa table or a console table.
The arrangement of the furniture in home will influence the nature of décor. It also determines accessibility and functionality of furniture piece. Planning ahead can escape from untidy arrangements. Though the arrangement varies from room to room but there are a few points which are common to all rooms. I am using this space to share my ideas on furniture arrangement which might be helpful for everyone.
Distressed Painting. Another option is to create a distressed paint look on your wood console tables for added character. This is going to take a little more work and a few more supplies. You will need 1-2 colors of paint a hammer file sandpaper and patience. First you need to have an unfinished table. If your table already is great; if not you need to strip it down before beginning.
In today's home there never seems to be enough space to put stuff. If you think about it it's amazing how much more square footage today's homes have yet we seem to still be able to fill all that space up as soon as we get it. We are collectors by nature and it seems many believe that the more stuff they have the better they are going in the game of life.
Start with unfinished wood console tables or one that you can take the current paint off of. If the table has any sort of finish you will need to use a stripping agent to remove that before moving forward with this project.
