What should I use?
Submitted to Community Chat
I picked up this heavy-as-lead, mid-century-modern, Lane bedside table with caned front for $6.99! Such a steal! I have in mind to paint it navy blue and gold (see inspiration picture). What Navy color should I use? The darker, the better and I'm a spray paint gal. I don't want a chalky finish, satin I think. Also, what gold paint would look really sharp on wood? I've never used a metalic on wood before. I want it to be really smooth and shiny.
I'm a bit scared to paint this piece because it might be an authentic piece designed by a guy named Warren Church for Lane (anyone?). Would painting it destroy the value??? Would you paint the caning?
Any advice is welcome!
