One is a wee bedside cabinet I bought for $65, and the chest of drawers was a hand me down from our early flatting days.
I used the colour 'Fort Dorset' from the Dulux colours of NZ range. It's more blue en masse that the wee swatch looked- I was hoping for a rather pale industrial grey, but this actually suits the room and the direction I've taken the decorating in better. (Or maybe it's leading the direction the decorating is going in....)
I left the original hardware on the bedside cabinet, but took the handles off the drawers. Unfortunately the handles I removed were not a current standard size, being mere millimitres wider than the handles you can buy today so my plans to put a nice cup handle on it were thwarted. Being
too lazy and impatient eager to finish the project I opted for two knobs on the drawers instead of filling, sanding and repainting 8 little holes- this came out to roughly the same price as the cup handles would have been, and I think it looks cute. Plus you can hang stuff off them.
Next up on my list? This beauty.
I'm swinging between a really dark charcoal grey and a dark grey purple. Any thoughts? Have you painted any furniture lately?
