Painted Tables

Recently, I bought two tables at the thrift store. One is a dining table. The other is an end table. Both are solid wood. I want to paint both of them. But, I'm torn as to what design approach to use. Do I want something a colorful like this?
Or, do I want something a little less colorful like this?



How about something a little folksy like Mexican tiles?

Or maybe something a little more ornate?

I kinda like these Moroccan designs:




 Okay, I think I've decided on the end table. I'll go with something colorful like the Moroccan or Indian designs (though I like the Mexican tile look too). Colorful it'll be. Now, I've got to decide on the design.

Yes, it's a revived obsession. I haven't scrapbooked in a while. Something has to take its place. Plus, I LOVE the thrill of saving $$.
