Popular colors are black and white, although there are others painted with gold, red and silver colors.  Newer models have a green finish, which has proven to be very popular among consumers as well.

A wrought iron console entry table frame has very few disadvantages or negative attributes. One particular downside to such a table frame is that under certain conditions, it can be susceptible to rust. Cracks in table frames can become entry points for rust and so it is important that owners perform spot checks on their frames for holes; areas that show abnormal perforations should immediately be coated with paint to prevent corrosion.

Another disadvantage with wrought iron console table frames is that they easily absorb or adapt the temperature of the environment they are in. If a table frame is placed outdoors during summer, its surface could easily become hot to the touch. On the other hand, if one is left outside the home during winter, its surface could quickly become cold to the touch.

A wrought iron console entry table frame is a good investment and if properly maintained can remain useful for many years to come.
