To paint or not to paint.. that is the question....







Found this great dresser at a sale for only $40. Its in great condition..of course I want to paint it



I have had suggestions from all my girlfriends to paint it.. I am seeing this in a warm beige with brown stain like Tiina has in Dream in Cream... ( I am in love with the Headborad she did!) of course every male that sees this.. says NO! don't paint it!! you can't!!! so it sits in my living room so I can stare at it everyday and decidee.....to paint or not to paint...that is the question...Any suggestions out there?????

HI Marlene!
I vote for paint. if it works in the room you put it in. You got a great deal. Yippie!
I need your mailing address for your PIF gift. I am not sure you got my other email, so I decided you might see this easier.
I will be back.....

Happy Tuesday!

I say paint it. It would look sooo pretty in the color you said. Man that was a good deal to! Congrats!!!! I need a dresser for that price for my beachy bedroom redo. lol I found me a chest for 30.00 and I painted it country white and I love it! I tore out the bedroom carpet and have got to paint the floor in there so my chest is in the office awaiting the floor painting. lol

Hi Marlene~
Thanks for stopping by, and glad you liked the pillow. I have been making victorian things for a long time and I have tons of lace and I did see the pillows on Tiina's blog. Didn't know if she made them or not, but they are beautiful and I can't afford to by any thing already made, so I made one for me. I have a lacy bedspread that belonged to my mother, lost her year ago Feb., and wanted to fix my bed with all the lacy things.
Now on your chest, I say paint it. I paint a lot of things, I use flat paint, and distress, and then add floor wax to it several times to get that shiney look.
Hope you have a wonderful blessed day.
Smiles,
Pat

Hi Marlene, where is this going? Is it for your bedroom or office or another area of the house? I would always go with the cream and stain, but black really looks great as well. Paint the outside black and the inside cream with stain so you can leave it open if you want and it will look just as good, or paint the outside cream with stain and spray paint the inside with satin black? What other colors do you like? Love Tiina...
