I recently decided to paint this dresser.
In many ways it’s nice as it is. But it’s soon going in another room where I think being painted a light colour will fit better. Plus it’s not in amazing shape (the wood on the front door for example has bowed) and my dad advised that a lick of paint would help keep it all together. And I always listen to my father!
So I chose Pavilion Grey by Farrow from Ball as base colour and then a highlight colour of India Yellow. I wanted to pick out some of the edges and this colour links with the yellow/oranges in the small pieces of glass in the top windows.
And this is how it turned out.
I went a bit crazy and freehand painted some decoration on the drawers. I’m not sure it goes with the total look of the cabinet but I like it.
I also spotted these pom poms on the Graham and Green site and bought them on a whim. They’ve gone in the bedroom.
A little ridiculous but they somehow seem to make the room more complete and they’re fun. At least I think so.
