This is how it has looked for a couple of years. This is a vintage stereo cabinet that we gutted the speakers and replaced with the bins that hold scarfs and umbrellas. It also holds our junk box. We don't have a junk drawer, but we do have a box filled with pens, tape, and just junk. I am a little tired of the green, it has always been a little bright. And, it doesn't flow into the dining room. But it is really useful in the entry. Painting it is always an option.
Or should I go with this look:
I like this even if it is a little atypical of me...I am not usually a red person. The table ties in with the color in the dining room. I added the basket for shoes. Mr. Hughes made this his only request: it has to be useful. And, a space to take off your shoes and store them is useful. If this look stays, then I will likely cover the chair with a grain sack. Regardless of what I choose, the painting stays. It is a Mr. Hughes original and it won't look great anywhere else because of the red. Besides, I love it. It is a friendly way to enter our home.
So, dear readers, which do you like better? And why? I really appreciate your opinions.
So, I will wait patiently (yeah right) for your opinion. I guess while I am waiting I will unload the dishwasher. If I am well enough to scoot furniture and blog about it, then I am well enough to do some chores!
If you're tired of the green stereo cabinet, then I say change it up! That funky blue table looks fab paired with that chair!ReplyDelete
I love how all the colors are related to the painting. It looks great. I guess the main question is: does it work for you?ReplyDelete
Hope you all feel better soon!
I absolutely love the 2nd pic, that chair is TDF!ReplyDelete
Hello Michelle! Both looks are fab, though I think that I like the bottom arrangement the best. :) LOVE the turquoise table! Hope you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Your a brave soul to go with color like that. I have been thinking about colors myself considering doing my four white rockers each a different color like your lovely blue, yellow,red and hmmm don't know about the last one. I love your cabinet. I had to re-read your post to figure out what it was. It is interesting with the doors being different sizes. I really like it. I like the chair and small table. I actually have one almost like it. But it isn't painted as of yet. Mine looks bigger but maybe not.. I think I like the entry way with chair and small table just looks inviting. I hope you guys all get better. It isn't much fun feeling yucky.ReplyDelete
Have a great week.
Both of them look good but I think I will have to say that I prefer the sedong picture. As for that painting, it is really gorgeous. The colours are so vibrant.ReplyDelete
Very cute.. i love the aqua blue table.. I do not have any of that color in my house.. so that may be in the works for me! Cute blog.. I am be back.. SmilesReplyDelete
My opinion is "colored" by the fact that I'm totally smitten with the aqua and red combo! LOVE NUMBER TWO! But, what YOU like is what matters...ReplyDelete
