"Wow" is right! This stuff is gorgeous! If I ever decided to add some color to my furnishings, this is the way I'd go.

But, because I'm an artist, I've found that I need to keep the color out of the furnishings so that I can focus on the color in the artwork. That's certainly not true for lots of artists. Many love living in color-saturated environments; I'm strictly into neutrals.

But, wow! Talk about tempting!

Cynthia, I'm glad someone else liked these as much as I did - even if they aren't the right furniture for either of us in our own homes.

You can also get some paint from B&Q which is very thick and has a shiny finish. It's a gloss paint, but is perfect for furniture like that.

Looks good.
