how should I "fix" these??
I have two endtables that have put up with long enough. They were given to me almost 7 years ago, and I have always thought they were hideous. So I finally have the means and the time to refinish them, but I'm not sure what I should do with them. Our house is going to have light blue wall, white trim, dark wood floor, and were getting a dark colored leather sofa. Should I restain them also the be dark? Should I paint them a lighter color to contrast all the other dark? They get A LOT of use so I worry about the paint holding up. The room will also be the dinning and kitchen, the kitchen will have white cabinets, and the dinning table is a dark wood. I really dislike mixed wood tones, so I also plan on refinishing our tv cabinet mostlikly the same way. What do you suggest, Dark stain, or light paint?
