painting wooden furniture?


Hi everyone, I am trying to figure out what color to paint some wooden furniture (bookcase and tv stand) that I have. It is currently painted white, but I want it to match some bronze metal furniture that I have in the same room.

I was thinking about just painting it the same bronze color as the metal furniture... but would that look weird on wooden furniture? or another option would be a painting in brown?

Any suggestions/ opinions? Thanks!

ps: sorry I have been a little MIA lately.. i'm sure you all know how life can get in the way haha

Try antiquing it. You may want to paint the pieces a creamy color first, then use the bronze color to accent it. Good luck.

I agree, I think that gray would be a very nice complimentary color. It's such a hot color right now that I think you'll be able to find the perfect shade. If not, maybe a tan or light mocha color might work for you?
