The Quest For A Console Table: COMPLETE

I have been on an eternal quest for 
a slim console table for our front hallway. 
You can see more details about that here

I recently dragged the husbo to Home Goods on a whim. Good thing I did, because sitting in the middle of the furniture section was exactly what we were searching for...well almost exactly.

I'm not crazy about the black color - so I may paint it...but the jury is still out on that. But the #1 feature that sold me was that it is 11 inches deep. Perfect for our small space.

Here was the "naked" hallway to give you an 
idea on what we had to work with...

And I am almost positive that I want to change out the two drawer handles. They just aren't doing it for me. 

But alteast our hallway went from BLAH...

To...making progress?

Now I need to accessorize the console and start gathering things for our gallery be continued!

oh, my. i can so identify!

have been searching like mad for a console table only 11 or 12 inches deep (this blog entry appeared bc of my google search), but also 30" high and 30" wide and with a drawer or two. i have one, currently, but it is horrible and outdated. the only reason i haven't replaced it is because i can't find one. i often look at home goods, as well, hoping it will appear in the randomness.

glad to know you had success.

Thanks for stopping by my blog gaultress! I didn't think it would be so hard trying to find a small scale console. Good luck to you in your search!
