Ofelia Macaria Console Table February 15th, 2018 - 08:55:30
In today's home there never seems to be enough space to put stuff. If you think about it it's amazing how much more square footage today's homes have yet we seem to still be able to fill all that space up as soon as we get it. We are collectors by nature and it seems many believe that the more stuff they have the better they are going in the game of life.
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.
Speaking of material console tables come in some of the most varied choices of any type of table. The majority of course are wood: oak maple walnut and cherry are popular although the material can be stained or distressed to change the look of the piece. Glass tabletops mixed with wood bases are an attractive way to add dimension and variety to the design and are also helpful for intermingling styles within a room. Glass is also uniquely suited to reflecting candlelight or enhancing the sparkle of your glassware.
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.
Armoires have been part of the bedroom furniture for centuries. They are used to store precious things and jewelry. Place the Armoire in such a way that it should be approachable.
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.
