A Two-Toned Round-up

I now have 3 dressers to make over. There is, of course, my antique style dresser that I picked up from the local thrift store for $70. Now, there are two matching small dressers that came in the same set as our new bed frame. They’re a pale, honey wood colour, which may be growing on me slightly but is, ultimately, not my style. On top of that, I have two bedside tables from Ikea that I’d like to make over and a side table with a single tiny drawer that could use a pretty coat of paint or a stencil, perhaps.

In other words, I have lots of dressers on which I could put paint. And a few that I think require something. Two-toned has always been an option, but since Jennifer at Rambling Renovators shared a project she did a couple weeks ago, I’ve been thinking more and more about it.

There’s something dramatic about the contrast that celebrates the two possibilities in one. What do you think of the two-toned thing? Do you have any two-toned dressers or do you like your dressers to be all one, uniform colour?

  1. Hmm. I know the two toned look is really popular right now, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I love antique pieces that have been refinished – I cringe every time I see someone paint a piece that would look stunning with a little bit of elbow grease.
    That said, there are pieces that look great painted – maybe an old piece where the wood needs repair, or a modern piece where the wood isn't anything special.
