Indoorsystore. (Full disclosure: I've been watching their YouTube channel for about two years. It's called Knorp and South.) They've recently gone into the business of upcycling used furniture and reselling it. Some of the pieces Megan does are really quite beautiful (like the ones where she adds large floral decals), but some of them are just (IMNSHO) hideous. (See the picture at right). But then she sells pieces like that for big bucks, so what do I know?
I've got a project I've been wanting to do for some time. It's a dresser that belonged to my parents. They bought it in the early 1960s and it was part of a "blonde" bedroom set. (I have no idea what happened to the other pieces.) My brother had this dresser when he first got married and he stained it a dark brown. (Ick.) Now it's mine (and has been for many years) and that brown has got to go. But what color should I paint it?
After all these years (maybe 20?) I've got to change the color. Of course, to change it, I need to get some paint and during these scary times, I'm not really willing to go to a big box hardware store. I may just order a can of satin paint off the Internet.
So, what color do you think I should order?
