The paint color I used is called Birds Egg by Benjamin Moore and is the perfect shade of aqua/pale blue. It reads a bit more aqua in real life than in these photos, however, and I LOVE it! I had it mixed in a quart of Benjamin Moore Super Spec D.T.M. Acrylic Low Lustre paint, which provided the perfect amount of sheen (not too flat, not too glossy). It was close to $20 for a quart, however, I've used inexpensive paints on other furniture painting projects and boy did splurging on the good stuff make a difference!
I've used painters tape to mark where I plan to wall mount the TV! The new color of the piece plays nicely with the blue accents in the chair I just picked up at Target as well as the light celadon green in the new rug! To see more pieces for my living room design, check out my Pinterest board! I'm THRILLED with how it's all coming together so far! The overall cost of the dresser (including paint and new hardware) was $150...a super bargain for a unique piece with character!
