Ok, so I showed you all my recovered hope chest. I love the fancy new material in my spruced up living room. But when I showed you my hope chest, I asked the burning question…to paint or not to paint??
I asked…you answered. The majority of you said to paint it and your color of choice was black. I was however, surprised by the number that suggested I paint it white. White? Really?? I never thought of white.
With that being said however, I must present the argument that even if something is considered “good” wood and you are unhappy with its appearance…why shouldn’t you paint it?? I’m not trying to start a fight…I just think it would be a shame to have a piece of furniture in your home that you don’t LOVE just because it is “good” wood. Why not paint it and LOVE it!??
Ok, all that to say…I painted my hope chest…BLACK!!!
