To Paint or Not to Paint is the question !




Here is the table i have been working on for a while now. I think it came out so pretty. The table is simple but the roses are dramatic! I was unsure of taking a paint brush of pink paint to this old antique drop leaf table but i kept seeing it pink for some reason. I can always see my next treasure all painted, sometimes its white then other times i see pale blue. Often i see a really out of the ordinary color i might not normally use like a bright aqua, i did a chair in that color with lovely roses and it turned out so pretty. I was hesitant to paint the table since it is circa late 1800's and worth allot even unpainted with old dings and scratches. But i just had to do it!Anyway here are a few pics and it will be up this evening on the website. On another note, thank you Barbara J.,Natasha & Lori for your comments this am i was so happy and thrilled to have comments from women i admire so much, your like Royalty ! I'm new at this blog stuff it's thrilling to get comments. It cozies up my blog like a fire cozies up a living room :) Thanks so much! I will be putting up some new decorating pics i have soon so that might be fun too. I love decorating, i get into different moods, i love my bedroom which everyone calls it the Paris Suite :) Its very romantic and when kept up is a pleasant room to look at :) Have a lovely day everyone!
