Since we received our new console table this past winter, I’ve been itching to style it in different ways and create a few new looks in our entryway. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about different ways to style a console table – I have an in-depth post from a few years ago, when our entryway had a completely different look. That post, one console table, four ways is full of tons of ideas I think you’d love.

When we updated this space, we gave it a whole new look with just a few new touches and paint – if you’ve never read my light and bright entryway makeover post either, you may want to! It’s a good one! 

I love to style tables and when we received our new Hamilton console from Lauren Haskell Designs (this is actually the Hamilton desk), I knew the styling possibilities were endless! So today I’m sharing a few different tips on how to style a console table, that I know you’ll love.
