I love a 2018 Color of the Year.
Especially one from Sherwin-Williams.
It showed up just in time to come to the rescue.
Have you ever seen a more pitiful piece of furniture? The other day when I walked up to the front of the thrift store it called my name. It told me it had partied like only a mid-century console knows how to do, but it was ready to turn away from its old way of living.
It was ready to embrace something new.
It had dings.
And on its last wild ride, pieces of it started flaking off.
Maybe it was its story.
Maybe because its lines were so pretty.
Maybe because I could identify.
Or maybe it was this.
Who can turn away from a dresser with a really good story, a willingness to embrace change and a price tag of $15?
So we repaired the top and the sides and sanded it to remove the old finish and primed it and painted it.
Are you ready?
Are you sitting down?
Meet my new dresser.
CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE IT?
It’s painted the 2018 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year Oceanside SW 6496.
Isn’t it beautiful?
Not a little beautiful.
It’s a Mount Everest kind of beautiful.
I’m still working on the rest of the room right now.
But I wanted to start with a color direction.
SW Oceanside sets the tone for the space.
Here’s a close-up of the tabletop with a little reclaimed wood.
I love how the Color of the Year works with different styles, from contemporary to farmhouse.
Let’s take one more look at a little before and after.
Here’s where we started.
Here’s the before.
And here’s the after.It’s the perfect color to make a statement in a room.
It’s the kind of color that makes a statement in a room.
It’s a color that says I’m standing up and being counted.
It’s the perfect color to come to the rescue….
…when a piece of furniture calls your name.
I want to give a big shout out and congratulations to @tracyredblue for winning the social giveaway I hosted for the Color of the Year last month. She won a design consultation from me, five gallons of Sherwin-Williams paint and a gift card from West Elm.
