Vintage Typewriter Table

When Spike and I went to Sutter Creek in July,
I found this metal vintage typewriter table for 5 bucks...
Now, I do love gray, but I am wondering if I should paint it??
If so, what color... I need some bloggy help...

Oh my, I am sooo jealous!!! If you do decide to paint it, go mustard or teal. Just my 2 cents...

Leave it for a while. Some night when your boys are watching Billy the Exterminator or Deadliest Catch you will walk into the room and tell them to pick up their dishes and socks and they'll gripe a little and you'll notice that there are two more boys sitting there that you don't even know, and that's when you'll look at that little typewriter table and it will speak to you and tell you the right color.

Your typewriter table is EXACTLY like the one my parents had!!! They had gotten it when I was in elementary school to type my dad's Bible School (college) papers on.

I can think of multiple uses for it now.

My vote would be not to paint it. But I know you. You should either paint it, or contact paper it.

I have a typewriter table too. Mine also was found in great shape & is a wierd tealish greenish color...& I have toyed with painting it. For now, I have it nestled in between my 2 girls twin beds as they now have a small room to share & we dont have any toys in there, etc. So I felt that it needed something fun :)

p.s. I like the idea of leaving it gray or if you do paint it, go with a really high gloss, something fun....maybe navy blue even.
