Choosing coffee tables and end tables is not a priority with most people when they begin to furnish their homes, and even more mature homeowners often look upon these as extras requiring little thought. Whether you are furnishing your first home or are considering renewing the aged and wilting furniture you have been using for more years than you can bear to consider, here are some suggestions that might help you.

Protect Them from Water. One of the most common damages to end tables is from someone setting a cup down on the table without a coaster. The water from their cup will seep into the table and cause those white rings. Sometimes you can get them out, other times you may have to have the tables refinished to remove the damage. It's better to prevent it in the first place.
Antique end tables and other pieces of old furniture are becoming more and more popular. Part of the reason may be that many people are starting to appreciate the antique market once again.

These pieces have a unique life and personality all their own. It comes from where they came form and how they came to be a part of your home.
