I really need to stop buying things from Craigslist. I can't have a Craigslist furnished home. A piece here and there, okay, cool. But this needs to stop.
Craigslist in the sitting room:
$100. Still need to paint that trim white. I've decided on white. I'm just so scared to ruin it.
Craigslist above the fireplace:
$55. Thought about painting this white, too, but I love the patinaed gold.
And our newest piece, a Craigslist TV stand:
$90. Love the shape, but it desperately needs to be painted. That butter yellow color is so shitty. Which brings us to my color quandry.
Everything in that room is dark- a huge black-brown leather sectional, a black coffee table with mirrored trim, the gold mirror (above) is going above the fireplace in that room, and I'm in the process of painting a wooden table gold around the edges and possibly staining the top a dark walnut. So what the hell color do I paint this?
Ideas so far:
What would you even call this color? Jade? I don''t know, but I really
like love it.
And then there's this, similar to the above, but brighter and a bit more emerald.
Or we could go with the color that we painted our dining room, Martha Stewart's Plumage- a deep, almost navy, teal.
And what about powder blue?
Or I could just be a punk and go with white, but I'd really, really, like to go with a bolder color since there is literally no color in the living room as of now. What say you, dear readers?
