Painting chippy furniture

I got a crazy hair the other day and decided to paint the light pink hutch that used to be in Paysens room white. It was a hard decision because it had original chipping paint. How do you feel about painting furniture with great patina? I used to not be able to tell the difference, but now I can spot a fake from a mile away.
I didn’t want to take that great patina away, but I’m glad I did. It just wasn’t the right color. I like it WAY better white. I should kick myself for waiting so long to do it. I painted the back a light grey color. I also knew I wanted to hang a couple wreaths on the doors but when I went to Hobby Lobby, they were huge and way to expensive. So I ended up getting 3 sprigs (I think that’s what they’re called) and wiring them together into a circle. Each sprig was $2, so each wreath ended up being $6 total. 
Check out my new dining table. I got it and two chairs at the barn sale for a whopping $40. I refinished the top immediately so I could use it but I still need to paint the base the same white as the hutch and reupholster the two chairs that came with it. The color on the walls will also soon be painted a lighter, grayer tan. That’s why I haven’t hung anything on the wall yet.

 I also decided to move around some light fixtures in the house. I’m getting not one, but TWO chandeliers above my dining table. Then I can really smack around some friends when we sit down to play monopoly deal. Have you ever played that? I highly recommend it.
