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.
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.
Console Tables are generally placed against the wall and are versatile. Placing a Console table near the sofa will help occupants to reach out easily.
This is where wood console tables end up being a godsend. Because wood console tables are not only tables to put the things on that can be seen in a home but are generally made with drawers and shelves where you can tuck away things you would rather not have seen.
