Because it took me 4+ years to find the tall chest that didn't work out, and I refuse to spend money on anything that I "like but don't love," I've decided to save our money and reinvent what we have with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware until I find "the one[s]." ("The one[s]" being the perfect tall chest and night stands or side tables.)
We already have two matching oak night stands and one oak bureau that dates back to the 1870s. If we just paint these pieces a creamy white and add new hardware, they will feel brand new. And, when I find "the one[s]" we can easily move them to the guest room.
I think I already know which white to use -- Benjamin Moore's Simply White. It's so pretty with just a hint of cream, without being too ivory (in person).
But that's not all I have up my sleeve -- I want to make fabric drawer liners for the bureau!
I've done a little research and I *think* it will only take mat board or cardboard cut to fit each drawer, a hot glue gun or other adhesive, and some pretty fabric.
These are the fabrics I like right now:
Our bedroom color palette is silver sage, beige, white and espresso. We have RH's Hotel duvet cover and shams in silver sage and chocolate, and PB Matine Toile in espresso.
Clockwise from top left:
- Artissimo Stripe Robin's Egg
- Jangle Silver Sage
- Alsbrook Spa
- Pindot Robin's Egg
- Zebra Print** Right now, this is my front runner. I looooove animal print in fashion and decor and wouldn't a Zebra print drawer liner be a fun surprise every time a drawer is opened?
- Garden Toile Aqua
Do you guys have any big painting projects or furniture makeovers in the works? Do tell!
