Do you ever stare at something so long you can’t decide if you love it or hate it?
Remember my post on How to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint?
I was a little disappointed that the color was so close to my walls but I could not face the 45 minute drive with 2
crabby angel children back to my nearest Annie Sloan stockist. I finally made the trek again because I’m working on my little man’s big boy room (can’t wait to share in a week or two hopefully…ok probably 3 :)) and needed some Napoleonic Blue paint. Spur of the moment I decided to pick up a can of Pure White too, you know how I love my white paint, so I knew I would use it somewhere.
And then, like I do, I wandered around my house, paint brush in hand, wondering what I could paint. I remembered that my friend Allison from The Golden Sycamore and I had been talking about how painting either the drawers or the trim of my bedroom furniture would make it pop a little (thanks Allison!).
So I went to town, and wasn’t so sure about it. So I painted the hardware too, and I’m kinda loving it now! It feels brighter and beachier and after staring at it every time I walk by I think it’s no longer a love/hate thing, it’s a love/love thing.
BUT now here is my dilemma, does it work on the piece below? What do you think, do we love it, or not so much? Really! I’d love some opinions on this one. I don’t really like when furniture is matchy, matchy but I’m not sure what else to do to make it work. So leave me a comment with your opinions, I’d love to hear all the fab design advice you have for me!
