Ever since I first saw the image above I've been completely smitten with the coffee table. It might be that the lines of the table vaguely reminds me of my own coffee table. When I purchased the table its finish was a rusty bronze. My blogging friend Karla, a professional home stager, suggested that painting it black might make it pop against my white sofa and neutral walls. The paint has been scuffed in a few areas and needs some touching up now and I'm considering going for the gold this time around.
Now that I've added chocolate brown walls and black and white accent chairs to the mix, I'm starting to question whether there are too many dark elements in my space. Add to that the fact that I saw a fabulous coffee table makeover on the Nate Berkus Show Tuesday by none other than Rashon Carraway, better known as Mr. Goodwill Hunting. Rashon painted a Salvation Army coffee table in an antique gold and I haven't stopped thinking about it since.

What do you think, should I go for the gold?
