I found this lovely chest of drawers on Craigslist Saturday and the second he emailed me back with "Come on over", I dragged my sweet husband out the door and we skedaddled to pick this beauty up.
Here is the before photo:
I wanted to paint it, but wasn't sure what color. I debating on doing a trendy color such as a soft yellow (the walls in our bedroom are gray and everyone knows the hot color combo is grey and yellow!) but ultimately decided to go traditional so that I could always use this piece whever we live in the future.
I found a whole gallon of mis-tint at Home Depot for $5 buckaroos and it was the perfect Antique White (in fact, that was the name of the color!)
Sanded her down, applied a coat of primer, and did two coats of Antique White.
Here's the result:
I am in love.
The soft white and creamy grey make me smile.
Wanna know the best part?
Don't mind the pile of dirty laundry in the corner. hehe! ;)
