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.
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries, metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look.
In addition to aiding in the appearance and style of your home, end tables do also serve a number of practical purposes. You likely already know that they are a great place to set a lamp to illuminate the seating areas that are beside them. Additionally, end tables are often helpful when you have guests over who have a beverage or snack plate to set down. But have you considered end tables as a helper in cleaning your home? You have likely had the occasion to look around your home and see a clutter of books, remote controls, pens, and other items that you need to have around, but always make it look as if there is a little bit of a mess. You may move the items around, try to stack them, but inevitably, you always find yourself looking at them, wishing you could make them go away. End tables are a way to do that. Many end tables have drawers that offer convenient ways to tuck those items away, but still have them close at hand. Other end tables have shelves you can use for stacking the books or magazines, and a drawer for the smaller items.
This is a terrific idea, by the way. Whenever you get new round end tables for the living room, you can re purpose the old ones in other rooms, adding a new table to your master, a kid's room or even a bathroom. Not only a great use of your old furniture, but very Eco-friendly too.
You need to make your antique end tables purchases from a reputable antique dealer. There are many antiques dealers associations across the country. Doing a Google search should help you find some of these associations, and find out whether the antique dealer you are considering is in good standing.
