It really has been a great piece of furniture that has lasted me 13 years so far, and I’ve love to keep it as long as possible. It also seems more practical than buying new pieces and I should have paint and primer to spare for any future projects. So, I shall soon be painting it black (Onyx by Glidden, to be exact), along with a couple small chests of drawer passed down to me from my grandmother:
I’d love to go with the colored furniture trend, but seeing how I’ve been changing up colors frequently, it doesn’t seem like a practical choice. For the time being, I’ve settled on a black & white bedroom for serenity (yet some contrast) with olive and yellow-green accents. This way, if I decide to change the color again, all I have to change are the accessories.
I also bought some drawer pulls and knobs in a silver finish:
I think the knobs will look great with the small drawers since there’s not much detail in the design of the wood, but I’m open to something different with the large dresser, should something catch my eye. I’m hoping to start on these pieces within the next few weeks, weather and time-permitting since I’ll do some of the work outside.
