When we moved and downsized I sold and gave away tons of furniture. What I have here is what didn't sell or no one wanted and so it became my bedroom. Just a hodge podge of stuff. Now some of it I really love, and some of it has to change. The settee is definitely staying, the end table and wicker chair are going.
The padded headboard I made just so I would have something, it is going too.
I love the size and storage in both the end tables, but here is the problem. I hate the color finish. These are antique wash stands and yes I even have the towel racks that go on the back, but I don't want this room country, so I took them off.
This is the one on my side of the bed.
Across from the bed we have this armoire that I am going to keep. I really like the color of it and it goes with everything else in my house, plus it holds the tv and also has drawers in the bottom for much needed storage. (That chair is a light beige color, don't know why the back looks yellow, must be the light.) It may get a redo or it may go, I havn't decided on that one. I've seen these chairs redone and they look fabulous, plus since it is so small it works perfectly in my room.
This is the new headboard that I found. Love it, the wood tone is darker than it looks here, I had to use a flash since this was in a warehouse. If the wood finish isn't as dark as I want it, I will paint it ASCP black and then distress it.
The fabric is wonderful, black and beige and yes the price is wonderful too. This was the treasure I found at Hotel Liquidators. I will show you my whole antiquing and thrifying trip in another post. Unreal!!!!
So try and picture the new headboard here.
And keep in mind the color of the wood here.
So the question is what color to paint the two end tables. I will refinish the tops in a dark walnut color like the armoire, but should I paint the bottoms black and distress or what?
I am thinking black and distressing. I love the look of the white also, but I don't think white is what I need here. I really don't want a color like blue or green, so you guys help me out. What is going to work and make this look better. Second question, should I just sell these and buy two new chests? Ok, I am all ears.
