fresh coat of paint
i have been a little obsessed with craigslist lately. i look at all the finds and see the potential in a piece. i like to refinish furniture. i am no expert, but i do love a good before & after. when i look at a piece of furniture, i see past the color or finish. i see the bones. and when a piece has good bones, all it needs it a fresh coat of paint.
obviously, if i had a little more time and a lot more money, i would be refinishing furniture all the time. but alas, most of these dreams only take place in my imagination.
so i thought it might be fun to make this a regular feature. i could totally see this dresser in my girls’ room. pink is my four year old’s favorite color. i love the idea of a light pink with black and white. it really makes pink seem less girly and more sophisticated.
wouldn’t it be fun to add some black and white wallpaper to the doors of the dresser? i could then finish the look with this fun black and white rug.
