Our entry console table functioned just fine. I also liked the black. It was just not a very special piece. We bought it at Pottery Barn 8+ years ago and it has lived in several different room since then. I decided it just needed a little more special "jewelry" on it!
I added O'verlays to the front drawer faces and new hardware, and now I think it fits in with the style of our home much better now!
Here is peak back at what the table looked like before.
