Thank you Maria! I just had lunch with a friend who is currently decorating her dining room and was hemming and hawing about whether to paint her oak table white or leave it. I told her to do everything else she loves (chairs, wallpaper, console, light fixtures) and then see if it works as-is first and relayed the story about planning to paint my mirror frame and deciding not to (likely my most controversial decision here). For me, I'm glad I kept my options open! :)
