Sewing room dresser

0710 blue dresser - before

This is the dresser before painting. It's got an antique stain and semigloss varnish. Perfectly pleasant, but in this room dark and too dominant, and it's time for a change...... (Cue splutterings from appalled menfolk).

This is after. How lovely is that blue paint? Doesn't it just look cheerful and happy? And lighter (even though the first photo was taken with the light on and the second with early morning daylight)?

And this is an example of the new brushed metal handles. What I particularly like, apart from the shape, is the tiny spike on the back - a nice design feature. When screwed onto the drawer or cupboard door, this will stop it rotating. A small, clever innovation.

Looks FABBO!! Much much more interesting than the BOOOOOOORING plain wood. (Plus, if you ever get really tired of the colour, you can always rope one of the grumphing menfolk in to "restore" it - LOL!)
