To paint or not to paint?

Well I ummed and ahhed. should I or shouldn't I, shall I paint or not?

This is the duet stool that I have re-covered,  I just can't decid whether I like the contrast of this dark wood against the creamy whites or should I paint it to match the blanket box behind?

These are the two little Edwardian Bedroom chairs that have had there seats covered, again shall I paint or shall I not?
I won't be painting this chair, it's too pretty with those inlaid legs and back.

Please let me know whay you think about the painting. Meanwhile I'm going to dress my room for Christmas ready to give you a tour.

It's crazy in the shops but I need to be brave and face the crowds to do some shopping. Wish me luck!!!

Hey Angela, you certainly have been sewing up a storm and keeping yourself busy. The days certainly are just flying by around here. I'm not good about making paint decisions. Seems everyone wants to paint everything white but there are some things that just stay as they are. Good luck deciding what to do. Stay warm! Best wishes, Tammy

Angela, thank you so much for all your heartfelt, warm wishes over the last few days.
I only went to one shop in NA today.... toooooooo busy for me... going back into hibinatation.. :-) x x x
I love the chairs, once painted, it's hard if you change your mind to change them back again. I think they should stay looking original. :-) White is good, but on splashed on history :-)

Never finished... sorry. Splashing paint on history isn't so good, especially if you can't remove it again... there you are.... that sounds better :-) x x x

I agree...some things look good white but I don't like to cover timber with paint. I think it would good either way..not much help to you though lol

Hi Angela, Even though I love white furniture and painted some pieces myself lately, I think that not everything has to be white, especially when it comes to lovely antique furniture in good condition. I would paint the two chairs but I'm not sure about the duet stool. It looks beautiful as it is and when it's an original from around the 1900s, I would probably leave it as it is.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
Julia
