    the teal is beautiful!

    I like the original myself but if I was to choose one of the painted ones, I would go with the blue... I worked refinishing antique furniture for about 10 yrs so I like the natural look

    I think the blue would be best too but it appears that the finish does not look bad the way it is. I guess if you have a lot of furniture refinishing like Deb and I have done and know how much work goes in it, it is difficult to slap paint on it.

    My favorites are cornflower blue or sage green.

    A pale yellow might look nice against the gray walls of your bedroom
  • Teresa Rogers Smith Sunset Beach, NC
    the blue one

    I'll definitely go with the black and white with vintage wall paper on the background. I love it :-) The top drawer has nice curves to match you vintage design

    I went with the blue! I'll post pictures when it's done. Thanks so much everyone, it was great to hear all your input. It really helps to put together an inspiration board or post like this to help you narrow down what you really want.
