This console table was a hand-me-down…most likely from the 60’s. I remember seeing this type of furniture where I grew up in Cleveland, topped with these kind of colored glass vases in weird shapes...
You'll notice the "before" picture has two large openings on top where I removed two marble slabs. They were chipped and yellowed and did nothing to enhance the piece.
After a quick trip to the local lumberyard, I had a new top cut out of Masonite and a strip of molding to replace the metal work on front. Next it was time to sand and prime. The paint from Lowe’s is Valspar La Fonda Teal which they made up in the No-VOC version.
Aside from the color, my favorite part of the makeover are the knobs. I simply glued stones to flat knobs for an organic, Anthropologie kind of look. (Not my idea but love the suggestion--thanks, Lea)! Now this console is much better suited for this young, hip, family.
