navy is the perfect neutral

Some people may argue the fact, but it really is true! Navy is such a beautiful neutral! It goes with everything and at the same time adds just a little bit of colour to your decor.  Whether your style is modern, boho, country, farmhouse, cottage, contemporary - navy is the perfect neutral!

This MCM dresser was hurting for a new look.  It had a seared mark on the top surface (hello Shellac!) and was missing a large splintered piece of the top near the back (Bondo to the rescue!).  Once both of those were taken care of and the dresser was prepped for paint, I went to my paint shelf and pondered a colour.  I've done several dressers in this style with the longer wooden lip handles, but none have been in stellar enough condition to leave as is.  These were, so I wanted a colour that would make those pop!  I felt like navy was the ticket, but when I saw bright pink on my paint shelf I wondered if I should take a chance and go for bold. I took a poll on Instagram between Peacoat and Moonflower from Country Chic Paint...

And that was that.  Always go with your gut!

I sprayed two coats of Peacoat on this piece and when it was dry gave it a coat of satin poly.  I didn't do any distressing because I wanted to keep the look clean and classic.

This piece sold almost instantly to a good friend of mine! She also loves navy as a neutral!
