Creating a Happy, Colorful, Handmade Home & life on the shores of lake superior

This summer I scored this vintage tulip table base at a yard sale.Yes, it’s most definitely a knock-off.Yes, I would love a Saarinen.But this one was $5.00 and that fits much more nicely into my budget.The base needs to be refinished and it needs a new top.I was planning to repaint it white (just freshen it up, basically) but then the mail came.I just opened the February (February!) issue of Canada’s Style at Home and saw a RED tulip table.Hmmmm.I’ve got plenty of time to make up my mind because this is a summertime project for me, but I’m curious:thoughts on painting this table a colour other than white??
Cost less than a sandwhich.
Don't mind the ratty basement-fixing it up will be a summer DIY project.
