    Default Look what I found on the side of the road. (? FOR GWEN)

    Hey everyone, I really need to play catch up here. We had Tyson's party this weekend with 32 people over so I had no time to go online. Not to mention Anthony telling me last minute about a report for school about Albert Einstein that was due today! I still have some cleaning to do but I was having withdrawls so I came on.
    So... Today I found this (see pic) on the side of the road for free. I picked it up and tomorrow I am going to restore it. I have a friend who restores things like this and he is coming over tomorrow. My ? is what do I do? Should I paint it or stain it? I took a pic of the porch ( OH dh agreed to let me have the porch for my scrapbook room!!!) Anyhow this is what it looks like any idea's???

    I would say paint it...that would definitely be easier than stripping and staining...then again if you want it to match other wood stuff you have, you may want it stained to have that look. That is awesome that you have the porch for your scrap area. Looks like a good space...and lots of nice light

    If I do paint it any idea's for the color? I was thinking maybe red like the desk that was posted by Karen I think? However I want to buy a nice chair so the colors would have to kinda go together.

    That is awsome. I cannot beleive that sign was just tossed out.

    I would paint it in different colors and paint the bottom row black.

    Oooohhhh. Okay. Thats a cool cabinet too. I was wondering how on earth you find a sign like that. I would definitely paint it. Red would be a good color.

    I think paint it. You could do dark red (Kelly was the one) and then a black chair.

    That is a great space and it has good lighting too!

    definitly just paint it maybe paint it a color that is inspiring to you? I know painting rooms a certain color makes the room feel either cool or warm to you and many other things. Like dark colors make a room look smaller and whites and light colors make the room look bigger. i looked up alot of info on paint colors before we moved into our house lol I think red is a good color.
