I have this wood pedestal table that I've had for years.
Here she is in our old kitchen.
It came to me from my parents who got it at an antique store when I was little. When I was about two years old I actually broke the table top when I was standing on it (yep) and threw my legs out from under me, landing my little baby booty hard on the edge when my dad yelled at me to get down. I think it was at that point that he refinished the table since he had to work on reattaching the top. That was about 30 years ago.
Ol girl has seen better days. But, I still love her.
I desperately need to refinish her and put on proper casters. The original casters were wood, but one fell off during transport when my parents had it, and were replaced with these super awesome plastic 80's vintage computer chair cast offs. I still have no clue why after all these years they still haven't been changed out.
Here's where I need your input.
Our new house will have very dark brown wood floors. It will be sitting in the kitchen where the cabinets will be white with a black island. I'll still be using the black X back chairs with it for a few years (you know, until Sam masters the eating without tossing food thing). Oh, and I won't be using a rug either (same reason as before).
Do I go for a bleached wood look so it has some contrast against the dark wood floors?
Or, do I keep it close to it's current color?
I'm more drawn to the bleached wood, but wanted to get your thoughts.
