Remember these sassy little end tables I bought at Home Goods a few weeks ago? I decided to keep them (as if there was any doubt that I was going to). They are dainty and curvy and are so much better suited to the size of my living room than the big chunky square end tables I've had since my early 20s.
But now I need to paint them. I think the grey color they are now is really pretty, but with the grey couch that's on its way, I think my living room needs more diversity of color.

I also currently have the throw pillow and the curtains shown below. The curtains are a dominant feature in the room because it has quite a few windows. (Also shown, my long-awaited couch, expected next Friday!)

So the question is - what color do I paint them? Do I go with a poppy red color, which I was planning to paint my console table (not shown)? A deep, dark teal that's almost black (inspired by this post from Jenny Komenda)? A bright, happy mango? A (what-has-happened-to-me-because-I-usually-hate) soft peachy-pink? Or what about glamming them up with some gold leaf?

Here's a wild card - mirror paint. I certainly don't have enough mirrored pieces in my casually Hollywood Regency-inspired decor.
The reviews of this product say it doesn't give a super smooth finish, but I like the idea of a distorted reflective surface, like mercury glass (example, below).

So many choices, so little time to actually work on this project.
Any suggestions? Thoughts? Comments?
