She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

To Paint Or Not to Paint?

To Paint or Not To Paint?
Items I picked up at an auction this week.
isn't this chair/step stool so cool, do I paint it or not?
I say paint it, what do you think?

I really like the green/white step stool, I won't be painting it.
I will be painting this wood bench, my delemma with it is what color?
Do I need to paint the coat rack? the wood on it has alot of scratches.

wall shelf has just the right amount of chippy old paint, I won't be painting it, or will I be painting this old cabinet below.

But this wall shelf and the bookcase below it will have a fresh coat of white paint on it the next time you see it.

I just can't help my self, I have to paint almost everthing, I just love the look of painted furniture.
When I'm at an auction and the auctioneer says, it cherry wood or it's mahogany, I have to say I could careless the only thing I want to know is how many coats of polly I have to strip off of it to get a good paint job.
God Bless,

I'd say paint it. I have one with an attached ironing board... so it's a chair (the board is the back), a step ladder, and an ironing board. I love it!

Melissa, I think you should paint the chair too. Can't wait to see what you do with it and the pantry thingy.
