I'm not very sure about who the man was behind the creation of this unique and great idea but all I know is he was somebody brilliant. To think and create a piece of the striking allure is definitely something no ordinary man can think; not that ordinary men are unable to craft out ideas but someone who had a vision of his needs as well as those of the people was exceptionally bestowed with intelligence.
Console tables have an enormous role to play in the contemporary interiors and each of them represents a subtle form of beauty and perfection. There is no doubt about the fact that the idea of using these tables ways back to the 17th century but the trend of the modern era has accepted them with open arms.
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.
Generally the sofa or chair is placed pointing towards a TV. The reference height and the profile of the household should be taken into consideration. Make sure that the seating spot should be accessible from any part of the room.
One of the most common places to find a console table is inside lobby's and hallway's where they not only prove to be functional but can provide a focal point or point of interest. Positioned in a hallway they provide the perfect place to keep your keys or place the mail or newspapers that come through the door. You will often find a one of these tables with a mirror placed above it this is especially true of those found in hallways providing a perfect opportunity to check your appearance before leaving your home.
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.
