Many of us have console tables in entryways and living rooms and you just can’t leave the table empty, some decor is needed. Design your console table in a beach or coastal style. This is a great idea for summer and will brighten up your vacation space. I have prepared some cool ideas that might inspire you. Let’s take a look.
The console itself
Change or renovate your console for your beach house or add a beach feel to your usual space. The most popular idea is a whitewashed wooden console. Just modify the existing console with some DIY whitewash and fix it. You can also try bolder ocean inspired colors – turquoise, aqua, various shades of blue and the piece for a worn look. If you have a unique rough piece of wood on hand, use it as a console table, it will make a statement on its own.
works of art
The easiest way to create a mood, ambiance and any type of decor is to hang or place a work of art. You can find a real one or even make it your own, and it can be an oversized statement or an entire gallery wall above your console. These can be painted artworks or maybe photos. You can use your own vacation pictures to enjoy the memories. For a modern beachside console table, an oversized work of art is all you need – just hang it up and you’re done.
Nothing is more natural for beach decoration than sea objects – shells, sea glass and driftwood found on the beach, floats, star fish, coral, rope and the like. You can not only display them in cloches, bowls, trays and put them on the table, but also make art objects, e.g. BB carving a driftwood fish, making a sea glass clad seahorse and more – there are tons of DIYs you can find.
