If it’s any console-ation…

If it’s any console-ation…

Is a new console table on your wish list this year?  I have a specific nook in my dining room that has been thirsting for a console table since the dawn of time, but I’ve never found one that’s the right size.  Scratch that, I’ve never found one that’s the right size that I’m willing to pay for.

Better After reader Katie has the solution: buy a banged up old dining table on Craigslist for $20 and chop it down to console size.  It’s cheap, effective and looks fantastic, especially with that gray stain.  I LIKE IT.

    What a great idea! I have one of those tables that I can’t bear to part with, but I might be able to chop it.
