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.
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.
Generally bedrooms are connected with bathrooms. To avoid shower sounds and water splashes place the bed perpendicular to the bathroom's entrance.
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.
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.
There are very few rules regarding the design of the table they can be round rectangular or square some have two legs and so therefore must be secured to the wall whilst others are free standing with all four legs affording you the ability to move it to various positions when needed some can even be used as sofa tables. In general these tables are thin and slender so as not to obtrude too far from the wall making them perfect for lobby's and hallways.
