{Survey} Am I insane?

{Survey} Am I insane?

20131016-104249.jpg

This is a very serious post. As many of you know, the Dupont Circle House Tour (yes, that's my wee apartment on the tour preview page!) is this Sunday. As in 4 days away. This means I have approximately 36 hours to get my what-what together before reality collides with the fantasy world where I currently reside. (At least that's what The Scientist tells me.) I've been a very good girl and made sure the projects around here were moving along in a timely fashion, and everything is on course to be finished up well before Sunday. So, with that in mind, I have a very important question to ask you:

Should I paint my dining table?

Am I completely insane?

20131016-103428.jpg I am looking over at the dining area and it's all just... Just so... White. And boring. And I really find boring to be boring. My intention all along has been to get a marble top for this table but that's currently not in the budget, so the table is just sitting there in all it's whiteness. And I was ok with that -- until this very moment. Now it is suddenly the most horrible thing I have ever seen and I want to throw it out the window. Or paint the top gray.
20131016-103439.jpg So seriously, what should I do?? Please comment and tell me what you think! And if you would be so kind as to share me so I can get more opinions I would be ever so grateful. I'm going to need a LOT of backup to convince my husband this needs to happen...

If you agree, of course.
