How about dinner on a palette?

Painted furniture has its own charm. An apt choice of colors and textures can work wonders on a room brightening up corners or just being an attention-grabbing centrepiece. And I think they look best in a bright sunlit room!

Of textures, the sandpapered finish is what I love the most ... looks rustic and right-from-the-attic! I think they have a quaint old world charm.

Wonder why it isn't too common in Indian homes as yet; we still prefer to keep the original color of wood. Painted blue and yellow chairs, and coffee tables are the furthest I have seen around here.

Of all, I particularly like the idea of having a colorful dining set up, where you tease your senses not just with a plate of good food but also a color palette beneath it. And it so happens that I am fascinated by the simple rustic blues and greens, as you will see below :)

Open up the windows and let the fresh air in ... air as fresh as this piece!


This table top is a series of painted wooden palettes ... love it!

I've linked up @ Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday with this.
If you all have a painted piece at home, do share pictures, would love to have a look! And if its something you have done, nothing like it!
Good day!
