Constant Painting Dilemma

I am always fighting off the battle whether to paint something or not. It’s tough to make that call on lots of really nice furniture pieces. It seems that in my store if something is not painted it doesn’t move quickly enough. Although I love the fresh look of white, the elegant look of black, the whimsical look of pastels and other colors, I also love the wood. Since I am on a wood kick today, I have decided to leave these furniture pieces alone. What do you think?

Nice to know we are not the only ones with that particular dilemma. Sometimes a piece will only sell once it has been painted - makes you wonder why you left it in the shop so long before painting it.

Beautiful pieces-so glad you did NOT paint them!

Personally i love the wood, but we can't sell it if it's not painted.
Have a great weekend!

I'm hearing more people say they prefer the stained wood....Perhaps variety is the answer!....And learn to recognize the more valuable woods.
