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.
Nightstands are versatile furniture which can hold bed lamps and drinks. Nightstands are generally placed beside the bed.The height of the stand and the bed should go hand in hand.
As you undertake the purchase of console tables to help with your storage problems you need to make a note of what you need before you buy. How much storage do you really need console tables to provide? Do you have minor to moderate storage needs? You may want to look at tables that are more ornate but only have a little storage area like one long drawer. But if you realize you have a lot of things you need to find a place to put away you should look for more practical console tables with more drawers or shelving options you can use to get control of your clutter.
You may be thinking you could just get an end table or an accent table to do the trick but that is only if you have a little bit of stuff to put away. Console tables are quite a bit larger than accent tables or end tables so they will offer a lot more storage space and help you keep your home looking clean and organized despite all the things you know you have had to put away.
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.
Looking carefully at the perfectly styled and finished consoles you will definitely murmur to yourself that this is a piece of furniture that let you lead a fresh life but with a twist of old ideas. The beauty and the precision that it hold is indeed charming making it one of the most valuable pieces of furniture in the homes. If you have already bought one for your home then you can be sure to have invested your fortune in the right thing but if you still haven't then you need to do that right now. After all nothing can console you better that a console table that's the beauty it holds!
