Adrienne sent us an email. She writes: I just finished sanding down an old dresser that I want to use as a console table in my entryway. After all of that work, however, I just can't decide what color to paint it. There is cherry wood flooring in my entryway and most of my furniture is a dark, expresso color. The adjacent living room is decorated in greens and blues. Should I stick to a wood stain or paint the dresser a "pop" color?
