Now, my Grandmother would absolutely FREAK if she knew just how much I love to paint wood.
Last week when I was visiting her, I made the mistake of disclosing that I intended to take these maple greek-revival chairs that my Aunt was giving me and paint them white.
Baaaaaad idea. I thought she was going to have an annurism.
People from her generation are of the mindset that there is a special place in hell for people who paint anything made of wood. People like me see the dated wood furniture that people from her generation left by the curb, and we give it new life and a modern look with some paint and updated hardware :-)
In love with the idea of this vintage french blue dresser...possibly for a baby's room?

I wish that I was brave enough to paint my own furniture a bold pop color, but for now I think i'll stick with white, cream, muted greys/silver, and blue-greens.
