inner voice {paint it!}

I am packing tonight (never the fun part of moving) but trying to focus on the exciting potential of my new space. I am beginning to realize how many pieces of white furniture I own and keep saying in my head "paint it!". These two boldly colored dining room tables are definitely making that urge grow...


(via real living magazine and NZ house and home)
So fun, right? I am a bit torn between painting pieces high gloss or matte though, so that is what I will surely occupy my mind wish as I wrap up vases this evening.

Such arrangement is quite suitable for a small apartment, while it is also quite warm. Greetings from China.

they are both wonderful but I am loving that matte blue!

Splenderosa said...

Oh yes, definitely add some color.
Anyway, if you don't like it you can always go back. Good luck on the move. xx's

What a great idea. I love how the blue really pops against the white chairs. I love old wooden dining tables - it would never have crossed my mind to paint them such a bright colour.

Me too...I am considering painting my dining room chairs though. What did you decide about the finish?

mydeco said...

High gloss to keep it shiny and I think easier to clean

Couture Carrie said...

Absolutely exquisite post, darling!
I neeeeeed a purple table in my life!

These tables are awesome! I think the finish should depend on your chair you're using. I like the high gloss with the wicker like chairs in the second picture, the chair makes the sheen less formal. The matte finish with the white chairs has a more outdoors/greenhouse feel. Love both

I love how the color is intensified when it stands alone in a neutral room as these tables show.

High gloss, high gloss, high gloss! Dreaming of a fuschia dining room table now....

I love the pink table! It is softly feminine but also bold. It's a nice juxtaposition.

christina said...

I just moved as well and need to add color...my dinning table is screaming for paint...I will be going for the gloss though. One word..Kids!

Naomi said...

Oh, I would love such a bright piece of furniture! But I'm always afraid I'll get tired of it quicker and want to spend more to change it :(
