Sometimes you can luck out and find a perfect old country console table, but if you can't or you don't have the budget for one that has been distressed and given a country feel, it's not too hard to take a plain console table and help it go country.
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.
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.
