This bureau has been with my hubby since he was young. His mother before that. It is pretty old. I first painted it a dark hunter green with a dark stained top back in 1995. So very early 1990s!
The next time I painted it I was 6 months pregnant with my Coco in 2000. I agonized over the perfect Pottery Barn Green. It was her changing table and bureau for many years. Lately its been a tv stand and scrapbook supply holder in the kids playroom.
Coco and I agreed – lighter gray and glass knobs was the way to go for her new room. This time I mixed some gray into the white – I am pleased with the light tone.
Two coats on and ready for some ‘sanding and waxing’:
And here she is in her final resting space with her new glass knobs. The color is a pale gray. It does pop against the white wall. It is EXACTLY what
we I wanted!!
I am also giving you a sneak peek of Coco’s room – more to come SOON!
