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.
This is where wood console tables end up being a godsend. Because wood console tables are not only tables to put the things on that can be seen in a home but are generally made with drawers and shelves where you can tuck away things you would rather not have seen.
Around the 17th-century in Italy a console table was a major manifestation of the culture of furniture made for the purpose of display. Many examples of the period were carved and were in fact some of the finest pieces of sculpture as much as furniture. An opulent group of consoles was made in 1675-78 for the Palazzo Colonna in Rome; where the supports for the tops were commonly carved as human figures eagles tumbling putti (cupids) luxuriant foliage and dolphins and they often were gilded.
If you are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
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!
Start with unfinished wood console tables or one that you can take the current paint off of. If the table has any sort of finish you will need to use a stripping agent to remove that before moving forward with this project.
