Here it is in it’s natural wood state. Too dark to heavy and all of the detail gets lost, even though they are beautiful.When I painted it black with the new white walls and added bead board wall paper to the back, it still felt like the “elephant in the room” because it felt so heavy. I finally decided to take a leap and paint it cream. I thought I was just going to paint it, But once I painted it, I was inspired to move everything around (Imagine that.. oh and it doesn’t help that my hubby who told me “don’t bring any more furniture into the house!” called me on his way to work and said… “I can’t believe I am doing this, but there is this dresser….” :).
See in this post how I painted a large free-standing cabinet, made it look old, and turned it into part of our kitchen cabinetry.
So into to the living room! I thought I would do something different with it. I painted it the wall color and removed the shelves, and used it as a side table. It worked well with the lamp inside.
