I love painted furniture if it is done well but sometimes when I walk around some antique centres it seems that anything and every piece of wood has been painted and I don't think this is always right. I also like wood particularly oak and mahogany to be left looking like wood!
I recently bought these two pieces - a sewing box/stand which I have decided should be left as it is but I am unsure about this screen. There are two panels of embroidery but would it look better given the Farrow & Ball treatment and with this lovely Kate Forman fabric. What do you think?
