fransis1678January 16, 2013
I want to change the color of the furniture because now I can't put things on the shelf because the color was too dark.
Please give your advice, what colors match so that I can put the displays look

Can't really make out what is going on. Is there space behind that unit in the middle ?

I'm not sure what we're looking at here. Do I see a three-seater couch, glass dining table, enamel unit of some sort?

Not sure what is going on here. Do you have a picture that would give greater clarity about what is taking place in this room? Can not offer any opinion since I don't know what I'm looking at here.

Is this your house? You have a beautiful space to work with. Is there anything in this room you want to keep? What kind of style are you going for?

WOW that is a custom piece of furniture. This a trick I've used in visual merchandising. Find foam-core in the size you would need. (Michael's sells some)find a material in a cotton duck or a silk if you like. Cut the F-C to the size you want to cover up, then cover it the material pulled tight over the F-C with shallow staples then use double sticky tape or a little hot glue, or you could just make all your nick-nacks all white. LOL!

I think I would do a cream/off-white colour over the green. One that is a few shades darker than your walls, and one that will compliment the brown tones in the wood of the piece. Stay away from colours with a pink or red undertone.

Are you sure you can paint this material? It looks very reflective like plastic or some kind of high gloss melamine.

have you checked on using Chalk Paint? google chalk paint and you can look at different techniques and colors. I have used the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on furniture. You can paint it directly on the clean piece, and supposedly there is no sanding that is required before. You would probably have to paint more than 1 coat on for a very finished look. The different techniques you can use will make your piece look beautiful and slick (similar to what your piece appears now), or you can distress the piece and get more of an "old" look.
Clearly just a suggestion---
