to Paint... or not to Paint






When I first bought my dark brown buffè I did in fact intend to paint it white. Perhaps distress it. But then I decided to try it out in dark brown, as it was... and it worked!!! It looks really well...

However... maybe I am getting alittle bored with it. I want something more eyecatching... something alittle different! And something another colour than the codes I have used to for the rest of the room... So I am thinking of maybe paint it in layers. White, maybe alittle turwqouise and then green to finnish. And then sand it down and distress it so that all the colours will come through... hmmmm

Maybe in the lines of these colours here.... What do you think?



the inspirational images has been gathered over the years. And I have no recollection of where I got them. Sorry. But if you do recognize any, please let me know and I will link it :D

Härliga färger! Liker speciellt den gröna nyansen på bilde nr 2.

Skänken din är väldigt fin, svårt att ge råd om du ska mala eller icke. Gå på känsla!
Jag håller på med en litet väggskåp, som tidigare var mörkbrunt. Nu är det malt, först i vitt, sedan i lyst blått och så lite vitt igen. Och så har jag slitt det ned. Är supernöjd! Kommer nog visa på bloggen snart....

Hoppas du har haft en fin tisdag!

I'd do white or turquoise! So very pretty - but don't distress it. It will look clean and modern.
I'm jealous, I'd like to own that.
