I spent the afternoon with my Mom yesterday, which is always a nice treat. Once we got home, I walked her through the house and shared my ideas with her. And we talked about my plans for the living room.
As I mentioned the other day, sometimes I get stuck from indecision. So, I often rely on my mom’s eye for design to help me make design decisions. In this case, I had been wavering on whether or not to paint the t.v. console.
Mom affirmed my instincts. So, I will be painting the t.v. console. I cannot tell you how freeing it is to be able to move forward and be one day closer to finished.
I wanted to show you a few paint color ideas that I have in mind.
This mustard colored dresser by Turnstyle Vogue is what inspired me to paint my t.v. console. Sherry used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles, finished with clear and dark waxes. The color is so striking and really has a wow factor.
I also really like the softness of this thrifted dresser turned buffet from My Blessed Life. Myra chose Paris Gray from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, with a coat of both clear and dark wax. I love that the neutral color of the buffet really brings out the colors of the home accent pieces.
Then there’s this Aubusson Blue dresser by Thrifty Decor Chick. I’ve always loved that color!
Now, this olive color is a very lovely neutral that would look great with the colors I already have in the living room. This tone of green would compliment, not compete with the rest of the room.
So many paint colors. All of them beautiful. I’m sure I can’t go wrong, but I’d love to hear your thoughts.
