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.
The real trick though may be finding where to put all that stuff. Instead of plopping things on a chair or putting more things on an existing coffee or accent able consider adding console tables to your home. Console tables bump up nicely against a wall to add additional display space and storage room without adding a cluttered appearance to the living area.
Another great area for console tables is the den or family room. Console tables with two or three large drawers are a perfect place to store all those board games that the family will gather to play on game night.
The living room is considered as the face of the home as it greets guests. Most of the households spend their time in the living room. So there has to be lively environment. Before making a move identify the focal point and purpose of the room which is generally a directing point towards a TV (or) a gathering table. Living Room furniture includes Sofas Recliners TV Stands Coffee tables Sectionals Ottomans Side chairs and so on. To arrange them in a user-friendly manner is not a big issue if you have a blue print of the Living room where the furniture has to be arranged.
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.
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.
