I’m taking the plunge and painting a dresser orange. Yes, you heard that right, orange! I’ve been waiting a while to find the right piece, but now that I have it I’m excited to see it come together. I was set on finding a great antique or vintage dresser that wasn’t super ornate and had cleaner, straight lines. I love a dresser with turned legs and carved details, but with a color like orange, I tried to find a piece that was less “girly” and could work in any space or kids room.
Update: You can see the reveal of the orange dresser here.
The top still needs to be sanded down and the rest of the piece prepped, but I’m on my way! And, here is the plan for the dresser. It’s getting painted with milk paint in the color Pumpkin. I am hoping it’s not a bright, bright orange, but more earthy toned. I found this dresser on pinterest from Poppyseedliving and it’s for sale in her Etsy store. I love the tone of the orange paint on it, and I’m hoping for a similar color. For hardware, I’m changing out the pulls (which I do love, they just aren’t part of my vision for this piece) for some large bone knobs. I’m keeping it neutral with the hardware since the color will draw so much attention.
