navy is a neutral

Navy has to be one of the most classic colours! It is timeless, beautiful and equally handsome. It looks amazing paired with metallics, with florals in a feminine space or with buffalo check in a boy's bedroom - regardless of the coordinating colours used!  Navy truly is a neutral! Do you use it in your home?


My favourite navy paint colour is Peacoat from Country Chic Paint.  It was a limited edition release colour several seasons ago, and recently they added it to their permanent line up of colours - and I am SO glad they did! It is the perfect navy - have you tried it?


A long time friend is redoing her guest bedroom and asked me to paint a dresser she's had for many years.  I happily obliged! She had a navy quilt as the bedding, so Peacoat was the perfect colour choice.  Here is the dresser before - not terrible, but definitely needing an update:



I did my usual basic steps:
1. Prep - wash and lightly sand.
2. Paint - I painted two coats of Peacoat
3. Finish work - I gave the dresser a light sanding to smooth the surface and then gave it two coats of Clear Coat from Country Chic Paint for added protection.

If you are redoing a room and your furniture needs a new look, why not have it refinished? What you think might be drab and outdated can be completely transformed with paint! Isn't this piece handsome  now?
