Sold! Empire Library Console Table

A lovely couple from Orillia drove down and, with masks, picked up this piece. I was so in love with it, but it was to big for my little livingroom/dining room.

DESCRIPTION: If you google “Antique Empire Console value” you’ll see they can cost over a thousand dollars. I’m selling this one for $250. It’s a genuine antique, so it’s only natural to have some signs of wear. It has been lovingly repaired and hand-painted in black and grey mineral paint, adorned with antique glass knobs, and covered with several layers of protective coating. The drawer features dove-tail joinery and has been stencilled to be extra-fancy. The date “March 1934″ has been scrawled on the back of the drawer along with some measurements and calculations which might mean that 1934 is the year it was repaired and in fact, it was built earlier. Perfect for a large foyer or under a TV as shown. Can also function as a standing desk, room divider, or sofa table. DIMENSIONS (approx.): 42″ wide x 21″ deep at top (23” at feet) x 37″ tall. Drawer interior is 33” wide x 17-1/2” deep x 3” high.

About Gina Storm Grant

I'm a writer and now, a newbie upcycler. I have 12 books published under 2 pen names. I've taken a 2-year hiatus from writing while I re-purposed my life, but the more I rescue furniture destined to become landfill, the more I feel inspired to write a new book. After all, I gotta do something while waiting for the next coat of paint to dry. Stick with me while I figure out the differences between chalk, milk and mineral paints, which stripper removes shellac and sticky stuff, and whether I want to do stencils, tansfers or decoupage. Oh, and which one is the drill and which the power screwdriver.
