Franzi Thekla Console Table March 06th, 2018 - 03:50:27
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.
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.
If you be a little more confident look around yourself and try to point out the things that could be one of those that make your life beautiful then maybe you will be able to find one for yourself. It could be a family member a dear friend a complete stranger in the park or even a piece of furniture that makes you feel comfortable. In the modern times where only a few things make people happy having a piece of furniture like that is indeed the best that can happen to somebody. And if you look a little more closely and go with the name then a 'Console Table' is the absolute thing that you need to understand the beauty of life and the things around you.
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.
If you are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
Generally bedrooms are connected with bathrooms. To avoid shower sounds and water splashes place the bed perpendicular to the bathroom's entrance.
