I got this gorgeous sideboard (the pictures really don't portray it's beauty accurately enough), a few weeks ago. I have been distracted by my project for So You Think You Can Decorate, which I finished yesterday. Now I really want to get to finishing this piece, but I can't make up my mind.
Originally, I wanted to re-stain the top and white-wash the bottom portion. But, once I started staining it, I didn't want to stop!
What do you think? Are you a wood purist? Should I keep to staining, or perhaps paint it?
