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 so diverse and available in such a wide selection of designs sizes colors and shapes that it can sometimes be difficult to define the difference between a console table and a sofa table. For those of you who are unsure exactly what they are the definition is really rather vague they are defined as small tables often narrow in shape supported by either two or four legs leaving the decision of whether the table you are looking at is a sofa table or a console table.
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 are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
Contemporary TV stands come with multiple shelves. To use them effectively calculate the clearance space and arrange the furniture. If you are running out of space then choose a corner TV stand.
Console tables are often found placed against walls and in some cases are attached to the wall making them more secure. These small tables are sometimes used for display and decorative purposes providing a secure surface on which to stand a lamp or perhaps some flowers. With such versatility and a wide selection of shapes styles and sizes you are sure to find a one that suits your home at a price you can afford.
