The Essential Console Table
Console tables are becoming one of the must have pieces of furniture for homes of today. They create a great focal point for a hallway or lounge as well as being a practical solution for keeping essential items such as your house keys.
Finding and buying that perfect console table can be time-consuming and expensive but have you thought about sourcing one from your local charity shop? You will be surprised at what hidden gems can be found there.
But wait! I know you might be thinking “What!” or “I won’t find what I am looking for in a CHARITY shop”. You may even be thinking that you have a contemporary home and you won’t find that look in a charity shop but take a look at my latest transformation and see the results for yourself.
My client found this console table in her local charity shop at just £30 and although it was very tired looking and out of date, it was in excellent condition. She asked me to give it a more contemporary feel to match her hallway in blacks and silvers.
To achieve this look, all you need is some chalk paint such as; Autentico or Annie Sloan, some wax/varnish for the finish and some great looking handles which you can pick up from your local DIY store.Read More
