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.
When you are creating a country theme to your home you will want to remove as many of the modern day items in the home as you can. How believable is an old country living room that has remote controls sitting all over the place? This does not mean you are not going to use any of these items; you just want a way to keep them out of the way and from ruining the feel of the space.
To confuse the matter further it is plausible for all sofa tables to be used as a console table although the dimensions may not suit as well. However it is not possible for every table to be a sofa table primarily due to the option of purchasing a two legged table which remains stationary and secured to the wall. One of the most common places to find console tables are in hotels as they are often used to furnish the lobby's and hallways often with a decorative piece placed on top to create a more ambient setting.
Nightstands are versatile furniture which can hold bed lamps and drinks. Nightstands are generally placed beside the bed.The height of the stand and the bed should go hand in hand.
Ottomans are generally placed in front of chairs and recliners. There should be space coordination between Recliner and Ottoman. For space constrained environments choose an Ottoman which can also be used as a Coffee table.
