Help for refinishing breakfast room table-PLEASE!
April 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Kitchen cabinets are dark walnut---I am having my 48 inch round oak table with round base and 4 legs refinished. I bought 4 beautiful Robin Egg Blue linen like Parson chairs with nail heads today. This table sits in kitchen in front of a huge 65 inch window. Should I stain it dark or paint it so it looks like a solid finish???? KNOW this might sound petty-but I worry and stress over everything! Thanks for your input!

I would vote paint it white. It will go with everything and won't compete with the other wood tones in your kitchen. Rug would be a personal choice. I go without one to avoid cleaning spills up on the rug. It's also easier to slide chairs around without a rug.

Consider painting it but staining the top and seats. A rug needs to be larger by three feet all the way around to accommodate the chairs pulling in an out. There are many indoor/outdoor rugs available today that would handle the stress of an eating area.
