shop space & your opinions please...

This week I changed things up again. My space saw the addition of THIS DESK, and I'm hoping that our local shoppers will like it as much as I do! It is now joining a few other furniture pieces, remember THIS POLKA DOT CABINET and THIS MCM SIDE TABLE ?



Anyway, while I was in prettying things up I forgot to snap some pictures. So I can't show you those, but would you take my word for it that it's absolutely fabulous...

This post isn't a total bust though, because friends, I need your advice! You see, I'm thinking about changing the walls, right now they are cloaked in burlap but I'm thinking, if they'll let me, I would like to paint the walls out in black. Wait come back... Hear me out, please! You see I am battling the peg board uglies (I know is probably just my own hangup and that it's super useful and that if it's good enough for Julia Child, well then...), but I just can't get past it... I think that black walls would do wonders to disguise the holes while also really accentuating the pieces in the space. I have been wanting to paint a room in the house black for a while now, but I can't decide which one, so tackling the shop space might be a good compromise... Convinced? No. Well, you asked for it then. I'm gonna have to show you these:

How could you deny the utter fabulousness of these walls!?! When I went looking for images of black walls I ran into pages and pages of inspiring rooms painted in black and I have to say that you can really take a black wall in any direction. It looks good as a moody backdrop, a high contrast space, with minimal accoutrements or layered to the max. I am pretty sold on them right now, but... 

What would you do? stick with the burlap or change it up to black???? Oh and just so you know my space is really well lit, so I'm not worried about turning it into a cave.

I'm really kind of loving black wall lately. And it would definitely make the space stand out.

I actually painted my back wall in my booth black chalkboard. It was neat for a bit. I did notice that I had to touch up if I had to take out nails. I just repainted and used a stencil. Good luck with whatever you decide :)
