To Paint or NOT to Paint

That is my question!

I bought this table last weekend and can't decide if I should leave it or paint it. I posed the question on Facebook and so far have gotten one paint it and one paint it black and distress it.

Then I came across this picture. GORGEOUS right! I have some Scandanavian Pink Chalk Paint I've been wanting to use and the pink would be pretty with the reddish tint of the stain already on the table if I distress it and I think using some dark wax could be beautiful. However, is this going to be color people are going to be able to easily work into their homes? The table is rather long (4ft by 2ft by 30inches high) I may go for it anyway just for fun! I'll let you know how it goes.

As for not computing much, I'm still having internet issues just so you know that I'm not COMPLETELY lazy about blogging! Just a little bit lazy.

Hi Sares,

Love that pink chalk paint, what a fabulous colour and I adore the commode.
The table is lovely and know whatever you do with it, will be fabulous.
Please show us when you finish.

Have a happy rest of the week

Mmm, I'd definitely go for it ... I think a little paint wouldn't go astray and PINK would look great mate!

Don't know what's fashionable, but I like the finish on that commode.

Thanks for stopping by today Sares, I know I am hopelessly hooked ... but they are so darn cute. :-)
