Hot (or Not)?

Josh and I picked up this a-dorable little vintage side-table when we were on our anniversary trip last month. However, it sat in our garage for quite some time because I could not decide what color to paint it! I thought maybe heirloom white, or minty-green, or peacock blue, or even marigold yellow would be cute.

Well, I finally chose.

And I'm still not sure. Prepare yourselves...


Yes, I painted it ORANGE. (Mom, if you are reading this, just please sit down and breathe a few deep breaths. I promise your eyes will adjust soon).

I have lived with the color for a while, and honestly, I think it's growing on me. I'm not sure if it's in an algae-growing-on-a-pond sort of way, or if it's really working.

I'm dying to know what YOU think though!

Should I repaint it, or leave it as-is? Or on a totally different note, should I consider seeing a therapist?


  1. Leave it orange, the pop of color probably makes you smile and it's the little things like this that make us feel brave. I love it!

  2. Hot! I love it! Orange is a very healthy color.

    NO therapists! :)

  3. Haha, thanks you two! I'm glad you approve, and Holly you are totally right! It does make me smile, and it's just fun to boot!

  4. Ohmygosh! This sounds super cheesy but this is my first time on your blog and by this post alone - i'm in love =) I can't wait to read more!


  5. Hi Jenn! Oh, thanks so much! You are just too sweet. =) So glad you stopped by, and so nice to "meet" you! I'm off to check out your blog this very moment!

  6. I don't think you should change it! The orange is great and it looks like something they would show on or in a post about adding color to rooms!

    I wish I had the guts to paint a piece of furniture some funky color!

  7. What a great color! I love orange, its a shame that not many people use it in decorating. It can go so well with many things.

    I hope you can stop by this Sunday to my Show Off Sunday Party. I would love for you to share your project with my followers. :)

  8. Samantha- Wow, thanks! I do love the bright colors that I'm seeing everywhere, I think sometimes it's just hard to take that leap in the "real" world! Thanks for the encouragement. =)

    Laura- I totally agree! I love orange and I don't see it enough!

    Jenn- OK, I will totally keep it. I feel much better about the orange now that I've had some good feedback on it!

  9. I really like the orange! Definitely a keeper.

  10. Orange is such a beautiful popping colour. What a great piece. I love finding vintage finds :)

  11. Thanks kate and anonymous! I think it must be fate then, I will just have to keep the orange! Yay!
