I love eclectic pieces of furniture rather than matched when I decorate my own home. Sometimes I paint these finds and other times I strip the original finish and create a custom wash .
The walls of this bedroom have been Ben Moore Revere Pewter for ten years. I wanted the ocean view to be the focal point so I choose a colour for the dresser that was just a little darker than the walls.
I sanded liberally and primed with Ben Moore Advance Primer. The colour is Ben Moore CSP upper west side (Aura). I love this gray as much as I love Revere Pewter. I think Revere Pewter is the perfect gray so that is quite a standard to match. I'm still debating painting the legs. They blend in with the floor and the tips are gold. My current feeling is leave them because gray would accentuate the gold tips.
I have to admit that the knobs and handles purchased at Home Depot cost 4 times the price of the dresser, but they were a must to keep the mid century modern feel of the piece.
