Look at Those Legs!



Cabriole legs, that is.
Last week, M and I went on a Craigslist adventure.  {Yes, I realize how creepy that sounds.}  I had been searching for the perfect sofa table to make-over and this Queen Anne-style beauty popped up a mere 90 minutes from our town.  And for only $80!  You can't beat that with a stick.
Martha Stewart French Bulldog

Farrow & Ball Hague Blue {a much darker, inky blue than appears here}

Now the real question is: what color do I paint it?  Originally I was leaning towards navy blue.  It's my favorite color, and our new living room curtains are this fabulous oversized navy buffalo check pattern.  But now I'm starting to love the idea of painting it a glossy black.  Or maybe just staining it to be a darker cherry color. 

Decisions, decisions! What do you think?

on a table with those classic lines...

I would go for the darker cherry stain.

Agree with Nikki - definitely a darker stain. A way to introduce color that I love is to change up the hardware! :)

I have that song stuck in my head now... She's got legs, and she knows how to use them!

I say paint her- Pick something fun!

I'd paint it. Do you have a sample of the Hauge blue IRL? In person, it is almost seems greenish... buy one of the small samples and try it out.

Also, the Martha paints are TERRIBLE. If you are going to go with something from Home Depot, just use the Behr paint. It is a better formulation for a lower price. Her paints are not great quality.
