I have brown fir hardwood floors, unrelieved by area rugs (the 100-year-old Douglas fir floor boards came from my grandfather’s farmhouse in Saskatchewan, and I love them).
Anyway, I had the bright idea that the room might be rejuvenated by giving the old buffet a coat of paint.
I really had to ponder the shade of blue. The buffet is so large that I knew it would make a massive statement.
I was tempted to go darker, but at the last minute I chickened out and chose a softer, lighter shade. Here is the finished product.
