Not White

So I have this side table sitting in my downstairs guest room.  I picked it up (correction.  Doug picked it up for me) at MCC a couple of months ago.  I think it's got good bones.  It's solid wood, the drawers slide in and out like a dream, and it's the perfect height for a bedside table.  Did I mention that it was only $15 bucks?  Side note, everything I seem to buy from MCC has the $15 price tag... strange, no?  Anyways, I don't love the color.  I want to paint it.  My first thought was white, of course.  I already have white paint at home... easy.  Lately, however, I've been thinking that a different color could be more fun.

(Please don't look at the headboard... it's still not finished!!)


So over the past few weeks, I've been on the lookout for some colorful table inspiration.  Here are some of my favorites.  

I like yellow.  I really like this little number... especially the ring pulls.  
I actually really like a lot things in the room that this yellow table resides in, you should really click on the link and check it out.


This bright yellow table caught my eye at Home Sense a while back.  Yes, I take pictures in Home Sense.  It's become one of my favorite past times since acquiring my new phone.  It may not be as fun as buying things, but it's cheaper... if I can't take it home with me I might as well take a picture :)


I love this green.  And that mirror...


How about these cheerful blue ones?  I like the glossy finish.


And this grey blue number caught my eye.  That table looks so familiar.  I'm pretty sure everyone's grandma has a table like this in their basement.  If you have one, you really should paint it :)


And of course, I'm loving this pink table.  Seriously, I would have never thought that I would be attracted to a hot pink dining room table, but it's awesome.

Life in the Fun Lane

So now... what to do?  What to choose?
What's your pick?

Hey Id go grey or blue. The one from Little green notebook or rambling renovators seem like they would go in your house. (at least what Ive seen of you house from your blog :))

I say do the hot pink and throw your latest toss pillows on the bed next to it... the ones you did with the Grammy Glam fabric... to tie it together. It would look awesome! :)

Do it, do it, do it!! ;)

If it was going in Emerson's room with the pillows, I would pick the hot pink!

Yellow! I am so into yellow right now- don't know if it is just my craving for sunshine or what. But I love first one. So pretty.
