I scored my first-ever thrift store find yesterday (thanks to my friend Lisa who volunteers at the shop). It’s a cute table with four chairs that fits just right in my front room – the room I am redesigning to be a homework area.
Even better, I got it for $35!! I brought it home, tightened up all the leg bolts and put it in place. It needs a coat of paint because it’s fairly dinged up and dirty but since I spent such a small amount on it, I don’t feel bad chipping in a bit extra for a quart of paint. The question floating around the house now is what color to paint it?!?
I was originally thinking I’d just get some white paint. It’s already white and it looks cute that way. Easy, right? But then the oldest suggested I get more creative. At first I blew her off but now I’m thinking… it might be fun to have a bright, funky table to cheerfully greet people as they enter my home.
Lime green with white chairs & maybe some polka dotted seat covers?
Perhaps a white table and then paint each chair a different color?
Maybe a light purple table with orange chairs?
A blue table with two red chairs and two yellow chairs?
The options are practically endless!! What do you think – should I keep it plain white or should I go crazy and make it a fun space for the kids. Fun colors would match the artwork on the walls 🙂
