I started building a media console for my husband's birthday, and finished the base of the console for the 4th of July. I have a reclaimed wood top prepared, that I planned on staining Dark Walnut, but I am concerned that it will not match the black console (my husband's paint choice). Would you paint the planks black/white/another color, or would you go with the stained reclaimed look? I have included a photo of the unpainted console and the painted console without the top.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my little quandry.
