1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Dresser - To paint or not to paint? on: June 28, 2009 11:51:18 AM
I picked this sideboard up for $20 at a yard sale yesterday with the intention of painting it raspberry, taking off the cabinet door and using it as a dresser. I proudly showed a few people a picture of my find and they begged me not to paint it. I felt torn so I took this to another decorating community where it was the same thing - half of the people telling me to paint it if I want to and the other half screaming "DON'T!". So I wanted another place for advice, because now I do not know what to do with it.


So, should I paint this? Should I leave it alone?

I also considered staining it with a red stain but after looking into the steps, it seems out of my comfort zone. I really don't want to mess this piece up.

Kind of newbie here! I recently made this for a friend, but I loved it so much that I should have kept it for myself! Although I have lots of the fabric left so I might go out to pick up some more interfacing to make another.

Hope you like!!
