This is the dresser that my friend gave me last year.
It currently resides in the kitchen, where I think it will stay, depending on how it works when we get a bigger table (soon!) I need your help deciding what colour to paint it. (Leanne, Tara, any other experts?)
Option #1: White (or any off-white). It would match the chairs, which I'm still thinking of painting all-white soon. The distressed look is getting to me. Although maybe if I get rid of the crackle-effect on the dresser, I'd like the chairs better. Distressed is great, but if everything is distressed, then it's too much.
Option #2: Some shade of turquoise. The kitchen walls are currently aqua, but I am considering painting them the same colour as the living room (grey-tan), or white. In which case, a deep turquoise like the mudroom wall colour would be lovely.
Option #3: Yellow. Before I painted the main floor, I thought I was so over yellow. But in the past few months, I've been craving touches of yellow for my kitchen. Like a yellow Le Creuset teakettle. I don't currently have any yellow.
Option #4: Black or dark grey. Our appliances are black and our countertops are black. While I think that is way too much black, maybe a dark grey dresser would help balance it out?
Option #5: ??? What do you suggest?
I've been waffling on this decision for a long time...well, ever since I got the dresser! I need help! I want the dresser to help give my kitchen a homey farmhouse feel (which has proven quite difficult with those black appliances and faux peachy-wood cabinets that Kevin won't let me paint).
