What Color do I paint the table base?

Yesterday I posted on my



Now that I've settled on a base I love....
What color should I paint it? 
I've colorized these pictures to help us decide...

Would you paint it black...??


or white....?


I'm thinking black.....
but then again I do like dark wood with white....

Please help me make a decision on this table!

Thanks!

  2. The black looks a little more formal or classy, the white looks more rustic... I like them both, depends on which direction you want to take the table?

  3. I can't make this decision without seeing the room. lol I know, pain in the butt here. lol I was thinking....why not cornflower blue, or kelly green and sanded down... If the chose is only black or white...I guess I like the white. Mainly because I like the sanded look that your pic has.

  4. It is hard not knowing what else will be in the room. But, judging just by these examples, I prefer the black. It looks more dramatic...makes a statement. Have fun with it!!!

  5. Love the black, but I would say it may depend on what the rest of your furniture is like?? If you have dark furniture, maybe the white, or if you have several lighter pieces, than the black!

  6. Based on the photos, black. However, I do agree with the others. It really depends on the rest room.

  7. Not the rest room lol, rest of the room! I realized how my typo could be misconstrued!

  8. Not sure, Susan! Do you have any Old Ochre {chalk paint} or that new CoCo might look nice.

  10. I like the lighter base. If you go with the black, I would accessorize it with some darker decoratives in your tablescape. Beautiful work. Cheers!

  11. I'm facing a similar dilemma at the moment with my own coffee table project. Unfortunately, this hasn't helped me decide!!!!!!!!!

  12. I face the same questions asking myself but I like the idea of the white with a dark stain over the white and the top can not wait to see what you decide. Though I have painted things they sit there for a week then I change my mind and do it all over again ya I just love extra work on myself but sometimes that is the only way I can really figure out if I like it

  13. I vote black! I love the way it looks. (Not that white wasn't nice too!)

  14. Black is the new white!!!!!!!! I would definitely go black, I think it's a fresher look than the white.

    It's gorgeous no matter which way you go...

  15. Ok Thanks for your very much appreciated opinions! I chose.... BLACK ... not only because I want to write something in black across the table top or side but because I want to paint my front door black and I figured I could save money by using the same paint....LOL... How's that for an executive decision? Thanks for all your help and I will post the results as soon as I'm finished!
