My Dresser Project - Any Advice?

One of the projects I am most excited to get started with is this dresser I got a while back on craigslist.  I know that painting it will make a drastic difference to the room.  But I am having trouble deciding if I want to go stark white or light grey.  I am worried that the white will be too jarring, and I am worried that the grey will just look like dingy white.  Here are a few colour options I have picked out from Sarah Richardson's Para Paints collection:
Promise - yellowy grey 
Powder - bluey grey

Bisque - warm beige-y white
Snowfall - pure white

I am thinking I will keep the brass hardware and maybe polish it up a bit, so I think I need a warmer colour to go with that.  Help a girl out - what should I do?


  1. I can't quite tell--are your walls a light grey? I would give a little contrast, maybe a few shades darker than the walls. Or go white. And I thought the same thing, a warm grey would be lovely!

  2. I'm going to vote for Powder. I think something light like that will really bring some great contrast to your room without being white. Love it!

  3. Great for the colour, possibly go with the Primrose if you want to accent with a touch of yellow. I am not sure what colour your walls are so it makes it difficult to make a choice. Best of luck.

  4. You guys are the best, thanks for helping me out! I can't wait to see what you think of the final product!

  5. Thanks Cathy - that is actually what my 4 year old wanted to go with - I think he has an eye... :)

  6. I think Powder maybe? Primrose could definitely work though. I LOVE your living room, so I'm sure whatever you go with will look great


Thank you so much for your comment - they always make my day!
