First: I had a burst of get-it-done energy last weekend, and tackled Avery's old changing table with a new coat of paint. It's a small, vintage sideboard we picked up in Virginia for $25 before Avery was born. It serves perfectly as a changing table. I was ready to see the shabby look go, though, so it got a coat of gray paint.
Before: Sanded-down white with glass knob hardware
Partial After: Light-ish gray
I intend to change the hardware, but have hit a stumbling block - and this is where I need your help....
Egg knobs in the same finish?
Also, I was thinking of keeping the "canvas" of the room very neutral in all grays - gray walls, gray changing table, and a gray and cream ikat on the glider (waiting to be reupholstered) and then letting colorful art take center stage, but it that TOO much gray?
I think in my haste, I'm not really thinking the design through, and need some guidance - so dear gurus of style.... Lead me!
*I'll let you chew on this for a day or so, then I'll follow up on the office/playroom situation soon!
