What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Sixteen Perfect Mirrors
Where oh where in the world can one find a cool tin mirror like this? And how perfect is it with that crazy fish and lamp?
5) Use orange for a clever paint job. The orange trim on this vintage piece adds a graphic punch.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Happy Color: A Rainbow of Dressers
Outlined in orange, this vintage modern dresser has an out-of-box style. The orange color naturally feels more mod, while the lines of this dresser feel more classic. I love how the orange looks against the natural grain of the wood-paneled floor and wall.
Scheer & Co. added this to Small Gestures Make a Big Impact
Borders and OutlinesWhether you're trying to revive an old piece or revamp a new piece, you can't lose with a coat of paint or two. Give your new-to-you piece of furniture a standout finish by painting the frame or panels in a contrasting color.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Bedeck Your Furniture With New Knobs and Pulls
We can just picture what this piece looked like previously: probably dust covered and hidden in the back of someone's storage shed. A punch of color and some simple new hardware brought it into the 21st century while still maintaining the rustic feel of the home.
