I wanted to paint it, but I knew I wanted to paint it bolder than all of my other furniture I had painted. I was at Lowes and spotted the sample sizes of paint from Valspar. There were many colors I absolutely loved, included a chartreuse green (which I purchased for another project), purples, etc.; the red caught my eye.
As you can see the before table had some personality, but I think the red just kicked it up to a whole new level.
