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
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.
I have the red desk and red side table thing that I got from freecycle, and I'm really loving the colors. so I vote red. barn red.

I love everyone's suggestion to paint it red. That would look great with the black Create sign. WHAT A FIND! Lucky you!
