My mom gave us this little dresser. I'm not sure if she painted it or it came that way, but it's quite cute with it's green and black stripes and natural wood top. The only problem is it's currently living in our bedroom, and it's far from meshing with our decor. We're glad to have the extra drawer space (since our closet is tiny!), but it needs to do a better job of fitting in. It needs a good paint job.
The question is, how??
Here's our room, with the outcast.
Our other dresser is crisp white, and we have blues and browns predominately in the room. In a perfect world, I'd redo this room entirely, but that's not an option. So instead, how can I make this dresser work?
- paint it solid white to match the other dresser?
- paint it a complementary cream?
- paint it an accent color? like navy or plum? or something else?
- paint it white, but re-stain the top a dark brown, and make it two-tone?
Any opinions? Your help is greatly appreciated!
