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.
Sometimes you can luck out and find a perfect old country console table but if you can't or you don't have the budget for one that has been distressed and given a country feel it's not too hard to take a plain console table and help it go country.
If you are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
If you have two colors you may instead want to put a coat of one color on and while it is still damp drag the second color over the top of it. The resulting striped pattern will look as if this piece has been painted over itself over the years a very handed-down look.
The living room is considered as the face of the home as it greets guests. Most of the households spend their time in the living room. So there has to be lively environment. Before making a move identify the focal point and purpose of the room which is generally a directing point towards a TV (or) a gathering table. Living Room furniture includes Sofas Recliners TV Stands Coffee tables Sectionals Ottomans Side chairs and so on. To arrange them in a user-friendly manner is not a big issue if you have a blue print of the Living room where the furniture has to be arranged.
Another great area for console tables is the den or family room. Console tables with two or three large drawers are a perfect place to store all those board games that the family will gather to play on game night.
