The other day I was at a thrift store (please tell me you love a story that starts out like that as much as I do) …
….and I found this table.
It was tucked away in the corner next to a brass mirror that looked like it came from an episode of the Brady Bunch and a row of miscellaneous vases. The edges were covered in snaps and a Laura Ingalls calico skirt.
I introduced myself and asked if it wanted to come live with me.
Just for fun.
Just because I love a paint challenge.
Just because I never met a possibility I didn’t like.
I painted it three different colors and styled it three different ways with Sherwin-Williams Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel.
Here’s my one table with three different looks.
Paint color number one.
Stardew SW 9138.
Isn’t it pretty?
Don’t you love the whisper of the color?
I thought it would look perfect with gold and white and buffalo check and books and so I styled it like this:
And here’s the finished table.
I love the how the neutrals pop against the background of the color.
Blue is pretty.
Blue is soft and welcoming and goes with almost anything.
But what about purple?
Paint color number two.
Mature Grape SW 6286.
That paint color looked like it needed rustic wood and a pallet clock and books and a schoolhouse chair and leaves and so I styled it up like this:
I think this is my favorite.
It feels so fall.
And those are just leaves I cut from the yard.
Here’s the finished table.
Don’t you love the gray with it?
A purple like this is colorful.
And looks like a party.
But what about red?
Paint color number three.
Radish SW 6861.
Hello, statement piece.
I thought it needed a little vintage and a gray shelf and antique water markers and leather and gray plaid and a vintage white bench. So I styled the table like this:
I love the bench with the table.
I love the red with a hint of vintage.
I love the stool and the gray plaid.
Here’s the finished table styled.
I’m so happy I met the table.
I’m so happy we became friends.
But here’s the thing.
I love all three colors, but I have to pick one.
Can you help?
I need another opinion.
Which one is your favorite?
Which one would you choose?
