Barrels - In this day and age of rustic décor popularity, why not take the theme to your end tables, through barrels. For a real county look, consider a couple of old whiskey barrels as end tables. Many a barrel are finished and sealed to make them attractive, and very sturdy, end table additions. If you really want to make the look fun, you can get blank barrels and write your own words on the side, with your family name or other phrase that means something to you and your family. You can even have a piece of glass to fit in the end to have a glass top.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
If you are in the market for a pair of new end tables or just have purchased them, you know they are not cheap investments. While end tables get overlooked when it comes to the fancier pieces of furniture in your home, they are still generally solid pieces that cost a good amount of money to get a hold of and should be treated as the strong pieces of furniture that they are. With that said, it's time for you to be a good owner of your end tables. Here are four things you need to do to give your tables a long and strong life.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However, should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless, your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
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.
These tables can provide built-in storage. Look for ones with shelves for books and magazines, and drawers for remote controls or a box of tissues. I own living room end tables that look like apothecary cabinets-they've got eight small drawers, each the perfect height to store DVD cases on end. Some tables come with built-in baskets for bulky storage, like the baby's stuffed animals and blanket. If you subscribe to more than a few magazines, you can find living room end tables with magazine racks.
