I am working on a display for an event in August. I have no interest in asking the museum for tables and chairs to use as the only things that they would have are modern metal or artifacts. This is an indoor demonstration.
Anyway, I have a kitchen table that has tapered legs very similar to period tables that I have seen. The problem is that it need to be painted. The farmstead house is German but I'm not fond of black painted furniture. I have also seen mustard yellow.
Has anyone painted a table for such a use? Any suggestions on color?
I will also mention that for this project the table will be covered with a table cloth but I would like to be able to use it for other projects as well.
Thanks so much for any suggestions.
