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.
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!
If you are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
