Decorating a console table depends on two factors - decor theme of your home and the placement. When it comes to a decor theme you need to be very clear about the same. Before you start the process of placing home decor items on a table ensure that you have chalked out a rough plan. The best way to go about it is by jotting down what all needs to be placed on a table. If the table is placed in a foyer or a hallway then it will be decked up in a manner to facilitate easy access to day-to-day items. When placed in a living or a dining room the console table is used for placement of decor items or decanters.
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.
One of the most common places to find a console table is inside lobby's and hallway's where they not only prove to be functional but can provide a focal point or point of interest. Positioned in a hallway they provide the perfect place to keep your keys or place the mail or newspapers that come through the door. You will often find a one of these tables with a mirror placed above it this is especially true of those found in hallways providing a perfect opportunity to check your appearance before leaving your home.
The story of life these days is somewhat like this "Your job keeps you occupied all day and sometimes even at the night; your busy schedule with family and friends doesn't permit you to make time for yourself. Your life is a complete mess of things that you want to do but aren't able to do and things you are doing but don't want to do. Your life has become a shamble of the necessary and unnecessary substances and no matter how hard you try things won't get better unless there is something that can console you give you the happiness and uplift your life."However finding something like this is close to impossible; but that doesn't mean you should give up.
Next beat up the table. Yes you read that right. There is no old country table that is in perfect condition which means you need to use the file or sandpaper to rough up the edges. If you want it to look well used you can use the hammer to make a few dings.
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.
