Update on DR progress - new (CL) table in place & I have a ?
Our Queen Anne table and chairs have not sold yet, but I have been anxious to set up the new table, so we finally did that last night. Here is a picture of the table I bought on CL and my consignment shop chairs with the cut down finials. My plan was to paint the chairs black, but what do you think of the combination of woods? I think it looks OK from a distance, but not so sure about up close. I'm pretty sure I'd like the chairs in black, but I've never attempted a painting project like this and am not sure how to achieve a smooth, durable paint finish. I'm afraid to start. What would you do? Keep the 2 wood tones or paint?
