WiP Wednesday -The Dresser, And Some TP Planting

I have been working on painting this dresser for a few days now. On Monday I traced this image onto the dresser with the projector and on Tuesday I painted the design this slightly darker shade of blue.
I had plans to add a couple more colors to the design but when I had put the drawers back in the dresser (they're still sticking out a little because I didn't want the paint to stick) I thought to myself, that looks pretty good the way it is! I asked a few of you for advice on whether I should add the other colors or not and the dilemma still stands. Then Mary suggested putting cling wrap over a drawer and trying some of the accents...which is when I remembered I have Photoshop! So the picture below is an edited photo with both aqua and green accents added. I need your advice! Do I add the green and aqua or do I leave it blue and white?
 These are other elements in our room.
Top left: A math  project I did in 6th grade, essentially measure and copy an original. All art framed in the same style by my Dad.
Top Right: Vase of Roses, Van Gogh
Bottom Left: Irises, Van Gogh
Bottom Right: Light blue material is our curtains, Blue and Green material on left is our paisley duvet cover (the ONLY one Luke and I could agree on.) Diamond quilt is my French Kiss quilt (see here) The light blue paint card in the back is the color I painted the dresser. The three bolder paint chip's are the colors for the accent. The one I've already painted on is the blue on the bottom.


Also a work in progress is my seed growing. I'm trying a route I pinned on Pinterest using toilet paper rolls (and some paper towel rolls) and produce/bakery containers as the green house.
 The two bins on the right are Zinnia's and the one on the left has various starters of squash.
Lastly, I've got some binding to do and these quilts will be all done!!!

I love the green accents! Makes the design. Isn't photoshop a wonder...

That's a tough call on the dresser! I'm kinda liking it as is, yet the added colors go so well with your other decor. Either way, you can't go wrong, though... it's gorgeous!

I say add the other colors - it adds so much dimension!

You've got a lot going on!
And I'm no help on the dresser - I like it both ways!

Love that design! It's great just two colors, but I can see how more colors might be great too!

I love the green accents gives it some more depth. Can't wait to see what you decide!

Jessica said...

Oh my gosh, I LOVE your dresser!! I personally like just the blue and white, but I'm sure it will be beautiful either way.

Your dresser is AMAZING. I think I like it more with the green accents, but I don't think you can go wrong, personally.

I like the added colors. It adds depth, plus more versatile with other colors in your room now and in another room later if furniture needs to be moved.

Thanks! Trying to squeeze it all in during Spring Break!

I started dots on Thirsday. I'd love for you to come back next week and see how it turned out!

JHNickodemus said...

Yah I was super on the fence. I opted to add dots though and I'm liking the look so far. I'm hoping to pick up knobs this weekend!

JHNickodemus said...

Thank you! I've begiun the dots and hope to find knobs this weekend!

JHNickodemus said...

Gah I was swayed by the thought of more color. I'm hoping to get knobs this weekend and do a final post next week!

I figure all the rooms are so different I'd have to repnt anyway. I have however had a blue and green room since I was allowed to pick paint and Luke was alerted to that fact pre wedding.
