Too paint or not…

My friend Kate gave me this table. Her father made it. I have been waffling about painting the top white. I plan to put it on the front or back porch.

What IS the top made of? Kind of pretty. I paint everything nowadays. But, depending how it'll look with the things around it, I might not.

Paint it! It looks like someone just got too lazy to finish the top, ya know?
It will go with your decor much better, and give it even more nautical appeal

Hey Renee. I'm a paint it kinda gal. Not really feeling the unfinished top or even the blue really. Guess it depends on what it's near. Can't wait to see what you do with it...Tracy

That depends on where you're going to put it. If it goes with the decor, I'd leave it. The base would look great painted white and distressed.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Yep, I would definitely paint it!

Blondie's Journal said...

The wood is very pretty and some would say it is a shame to cover up. I say, do what you feel is your strongest inclination!
