I bought an old and rather shocking looking dresser a while back for a great price, and decided to do it up and put it in my room. After much debate about the colour, I decided to go with black with touches of white. I used satin paint (in between matt and gloss) and it gave it a great finish. Here are some pics to get you inspired:
Above: I use the table as my dressing table in my room. I also wanted to hang some pictures above it, but didn’t want to spend lots of money on frames. So I clipped pictures into hangers which have been lying around in my cupboard for years. It also means I can change them easily.
Above: I decided to break the black up with some white edges on each drawer. I’m definitely glad I did it as the black would have been a bit too much without it. I’m getting a bit bored of the colour now, so think I’m going to try out a variation of grey sometime soon….watch this space 🙂
