help!




a few weeks ago d and i transformed this $5 garage sale table.
it was black and chipping (in a not so cute way) when we got it and we decided it was calling out for a new hue.
i was visualizing a plastic-fantastic-blinding-bright-yellow, but couldn't convince my better half to go for it, so we compromised and this is what we came out with.
i'm so unsatisfied with it and i think deep down this isn't exactly what he imagined either, though he'll have to leave a comment here as i haven't heard him utter those words.
at this point i think the not-so-cute-chipping-black was a better look for this tired little piece.
so for now it sits in my sis and bro-in-law's garage awaiting another makeover (insert d's major eye rolls here).
what do you think?
opinions please....crazy bright yellow? fuschia? back to black?
help!

  1. Well, black is my favorite color so I might vote for that. But not like the chipped pic above. Nice, solid, shinny black. Or, if it were going in my cabinish house, I'd go with a burnt brick red or something crazy like that. But maybe I'm not the one to ask b/c I think your makeover of it looks nice. :)

  2. I vote for the yellow! I love bright yellow pieces in a house. Makes it feel cheery!!

  3. I vote for bright yellow or a fire engine red. It looks like a piece that needs brightness to it for sure.

  4. ugh my comment went away. I like the black and all its wear and tear. One thought is sand down some of the yellow (middle pic) and give it a faux vintage look. Let's see the finished product.... xo
