Console tables really can be multi-purpose pieces of furniture. If they are a good size, shape and style, they can really move and grow with you.
Case and point, this console table. Toooootally, not my style under normal circumstances. However, since I’m so into boldly-painted furniture, I thought the oversized proportions, turned legs, etc. would be the perfect home for the smaller tv, dvds and toys in our sunroom.
Imagine large baskets filled with toys, tucked nicely underneath this fun piece that happens to also be on super sale at the aforementioned furniture store. There are also those two nice, big drawers to store DVDs, and it’s shallow in depth, so it would be far less intrusive than the oversized art-deco desk that we have in there now.
I imagine this painted in a bright, high-gloss turquoise or yellow and packed full of all the things my kids love (those, which I hate to have strewn about my sunroom all the time!)
