Ok, I'm struggling with a dilemma. Perhaps you lovely ladies could help me. We are in the process of remodeling the house. In the process of choosing colors I'm trying to rearrange our furniture so I can get rid of things I don't want. Here's the problem....I have this antique wardrobe that my hubby and I bought back in New Orleans when we were first married. It was one of the only pieces that survived Katrina so it's very sentimental. I consider the big scratch it's badge of honor.
I also placed a few things I kept as gifts from friends and hubby that represent Paris. My husband and I got in engaged in Paris and spent part of our honeymoon there also. Again, sentimental. The wall behind the wardrobe is going to be painted a cream color so the wood stains won't compete once it's painted. Should I paint my wardrobe or leave it the way it is? I have some other pieces that mismatch so I'm painting it a shabby chic black. You know where it looks a bit worn. Do you think I should paint the wardrobe as well? I really don't know what to do. My poor wardrobe has definitely seen better days. And what do you think about the old picture above it? Any suggestions?
