Good Question: Advice for Restoring Diner Booth?

I would love help bringing this c1920's diner booth back to life. It's in my kitchen, which has white cabinets and "hint of gray" on the walls. We are going to do a large black and white tiled floor as well. This will be my first time bringing a piece of furniture back to life. Any thoughts on paint choice or other treatments would be so helpful. Thanks so much! Lost in Boston, Michelle

Thanks for writing in, Michelle! This looks like a fantastic DIY project. Black and white tiles with white and gray cabinets makes us think that this booth needs a shot of color. Perhaps white wood with yellow seat cushions? Or, rather than painting panels on the wood work (like in the photo) you could paint the exterior of the benches solid white and the inside of the seats a bright color.

Let's hear what everyone else has to offer up for this diner booth revamp.
