Black or White?

I have this hutch that used to hang in my mom’s house.   I want to use it my den above my sideboard to put white plates mixed with some silver pieces.     Here’s where I want to hang it…..

I don’t know why I never can capture the true wall color….here it looks gray-ish and it’s a true khaki

 

Here’s what it looks like:

I’m removing the dowel rod since that screams “country” to me!

Would you paint it black or white?    Opinions please!!!

Judy, if it were me I would do black since the piece below it is dark and you're putting white plates on it. It would really "POP" : )
Hope I helped ~

I think black if you are going to put your white plates and silver on it, Judy. I think the plates might "disappear" against it if it were white.

I agree. I vote for black, for the contrast with the white plates and silver.

Judy I vote for painting it black, especially if your going to place white plates on it. The white and silver will really pop!

Like everyone else I also was thinking black, especially to show off white plates

Black would look really pretty since you have so much around your house. i would use a fine steel wool around the edges to distress it some. i did this to my hutch and my cream ware really looks bright in it.

Guess it's unanimous -- black! Can't wait to see it in its new home.

I think black is the best choice. The mix of white and silver will be so pretty against black. White seems a like it might be a little too light or 'floaty' above the heavier dark piece.
