This console table features a herringbone style top and is furnished with interior shelving. The shelving area is over 15" which is very ideal for putting your printer in or your collection of books. The hardware is a brush nickel bronze and looks very close to black. We do offer discounts for those who like the natural wood look best and will not require any staining or painting. The cross frames shown on the front are very charming and really embody that modern farmhouse look you've been going for!
