In the garage, I have a big, ugly black dresser that I got from Goodwill for $20. The paint is scabby and gross and most of the handles have fallen off or are hanging from one side. But I have a dream of sanding it down and painting it up and using it as a TV stand. Then I would have drawers and drawers of storage for DVDs etc. I would love for them to be hidden away but still accessible. But I haven't really decided what color to paint it. Black or white or colorful? Subtle or wild? High gloss or flat? Ahh the choices! So I went to the interwebs searching for inspiration, and I found so many choices that I am even more ovewhelmed now than before. So vote now on your favorites! I need all the help I can get ;)
This is a good mix of exciting and subtle, but it might be hard to do it myself.
gray is definitey a possibility
White is also a very good option, since it is versatile and subtle and classic.
Black is good because it is also versatile and classic. But glossy or flat paint? And I really want to paint the master bedroom dresser black, so would that be too many black dressers??
Oh my! The bright colors! These are pretty cool! I love them all, but I'm just not sure a color will work in my living room at present. And as my mom so wisely pointed out, this is a fad that will probably be out in about a year, and there will be people all over the design world with brightly colored and very "out" dressers. And I don't want to be one of them ;)
Ah! Stripes! So. Many. Choices.
Anyway, the option I am actually the closest to choosing is not picutred (sorry, couldn't find anything similar). I am leaning towards a really glossy, really dark navy blue. I think it would still come across as a neutral, would be semi-unique, and would still work with all the other furniture in the room. What do you think??
