A fabulous find!

My family and I took a mini vacation to a resort in Pennsylvania recently to get re-energized.  I love going to PA.,  I am always on the look out to find some treasures in antique stores along the way.

And really, I was not disappointed… On the way home, I spotted this beauty just standing there in front a cute little antique store just waiting for me to pick it up.  The store owner said it was damaged and she had tried to repair it,  but no success.  So, I told her I'll give it a try and I will take it off her hands for a mere $25.  When I got home, I inspected this beauty and it did have some knicks and gauges, the legs are a bit uneven.  Nothing a little putty and tweeking can't fix.  It had such gorgeous detail, I was in love!

I decided to paint it, so now, the big question is what color to paint?

In my shopping excursion to one of my favorite stores, HomeGoods I found this beautiful sunburst mirror painted in a gray.  Maybe, I can paint it gray and have the dark wood showing through?

Or maybe these finishes?

I love the look of this wood achieved by Savvy Southern Style.

Here it is again...

What do you think?  Do you have any idea what color I should paint this beautiful table, to bring out its gorgeous details even more?


  1. What a beautiful find - love the lines and can't wait to see how you paint it - great inspiration from your picks!

  2. How lucky you are!!!! as for the color, I think it depends on where you put it dear and the amount of lighting it will get. Good luck with choosing, this is so pretty, I'm sharing my shopping trip and finds on my blog tomorrow, check it out when you have the time . :-)

  3. I can't wait to see what you do with it!
