Need ideas for this painted furniture
March 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I inherited this bedroom suite and the paint colors were cute back in 1986 when my daughter was born. Now they look garish and inappropriate for anyone over 5 years old. I'd like to paint them, but have no idea how to make the pieces look more neutral, but I don't like white furniture. A friend suggested a wheat color, I read about chalk paint on here, and I kind of wonder how glazing would look having some of the original colors peeking through. There is a vanity, dresser and double bed in the suite, which was a wedding present to my great aunt in 1920. I am creatively challenged and don't know where to start or how to decide what to do! Any help or ideas are appreciated!
