Garage sales were a bust this past week, and I really didn't find anything worth showing. So I thought I'd share an ongoing dilemma I've been having.
I'll admit it. When it comes to decorating, I'm a real dummy. And choosing paint colors? Forget it! Here's my dilemma:
I want to paint this. Really bad. Have for a couple of years now. My family doesn't want me to. Let's just forget about that for now! Ever since I discovered Daisy Cottage, I've admired Kim's love of color. And when I last visited Common Ground, I saw Debra's painted pie safe, and new it was time. The question is, what color? By the way, this is in the dining room. Do I paint it white? Or a sagey green? Do I use satin or semi-gloss?
I want to paint this secretary hutch too. Again, what color? Pretty much anything goes in this room. I've got pastels and primary colors in here.
This bookcase is the only light-colored piece of furniture in here.
The dining room chairs are dark wood, but the table is always covered by a vintage tablecloth.
There's also this dark clock in there. The wall almost looks pink in this picture, but it's actually a cream color. Any advice you can give me is greatly appreciated! I guess I'm having such a hard time because once I paint them, that's it. I WILL NOT strip them back to the wood if I don't like it. Please help!!!
