I really would love to have your thoughts, opinions and suggestions! A dear friend that's moving to Florida ~ long story there! ~ gave me this antique table. It's at least 150 years old and in really good shape. The wood tone is really not for me but I need advice!
As you can see, I have dark hardwood floors. My love seat is a cherry red and I have one chair that is black with a zebra upholstery. A parsons chair is in another animal print but it won't be staying in the same space. I'm looking for a real comfy chair for "me" !
My first inclination is to paint it a glossy black or perhaps a satin finish. I have another table that I'm planning to paint too. It has a cream top and black base/legs. My thought was to paint it black with a bit of gold trim before I got this table. Now I have no clue ~ Just as an fyi ~ I'm not one for white or greys, regardless how pretty they are.
She has very pretty legs doesn't she?
The trim on the base of the legs is brass...very worn. I do plan to do those in gold.
The edges of the table are really not as damaged as the photo above seems to reflect. I'm not a photographer so we'll blame it on the lighting, ok? :)
There are so many incredibly talented furniture painters out there...please let me know your thoughts!
