I missed this somehow. Thanks! :D
Sorry to hear about the water damage. The dresser sounds beautiful!
I don't like all white walls. Feels too empty. We had blue walls for awhile too since we were renting then we got the a-okay to paint and we went with orange.
Sounds like you've got a lot of work ahead of you. Will you update w/pics when you're done?
My bedroom used to be a taupe/grayish-tan color. It looked great with dark wood furniture, like walnut or mahogany. But we needed to repaint because of water damage and my mom is letting me use the antique dresser and commode that her MIL gave my parents when they got married. The wood is more of an amber-y color, some kind of fruitwood I think. So I wanted a color that would look good with that as well as dark oak. Ds's room is blue (pictures are somewhere on this thread), my mom's room is cream, the guest room is yellow, and the living room and upstairs bathroom are green, so I wanted to go with something not blue, green, or yellow. I have issues because when we moved into this house, every room was blue. Then my parents painted everything off white. So after all blue, then all white, followed by more apartment white when I lived in apartments, I'm enjoying more non-blue color.
I did get the floor waxed. My next problem is that I scored an Ikea Malm bed from a curb alert. It is super modern and blond wood. I have to figure out what to do with it to make it look ok with everything else. We're hoping the platform bed frame will work out so we'll be able to get rid of our box springs which make an unpleasant ridge up the middle of the bed. It is real wood veneer (on particle board) rather than the plastic "birch effect" so I think I can sand it and stain it darker. If I could find fabulous fabric for cheap, I could make a slipcover for the headboard and footboard. Or I could paint it. But I think it would look odd to have a big chunk of solid color painted furniture with all the antique unpainted wood furniture. It might be nice it I did some stenciling. I figure painting/stenciling will be a backup plan if sanding and staining is a big flop.
I am pleased with the orange color and it looks great with such a variety of bright accent colors: aqua, turquoise, apple green, purple, etc.
