{What To Do?}

I bought this piece last year at my favorite second hand furniture store.  It was a great deal at only $60.  It's solid wood and super heavy.  I love the drop leaf on either side.  I am not a fan of the color though.  I've had a million different ideas in my head as to what I should do but can't seem to settle on just one. 

I originally wanted to paint the bottom black and use a white wash pickling stain.  And then I thought what about keeping with the black bottom and using a dark walnut stain on top?  And then I thought about doing black on bottom and leaving the top the original color.  I don't know what to do so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  It's a beautiful piece of furniture and it looks great in our living room.  Once the hustle and bustle of this week is over I'm going to tackle it so it'll be ready before Ashley's 30th birthday party! 

Hoping everyone has a great Tuesday!

  1. Nice table. I'm sure you'll come up with something that looks terrific. I like the idea with a black bottom and that's as far as I go. Good luck. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
