I wish I could say I painted this myself, but alas, I did not. I actually did paint a similar dresser white and yellow stripes as I was moving to Chicago post-college, but when it comes to lacquer, it is best left to the pros! I tested six different green colors before I found the right one. I tried out Benjamin Moore (BM) Bunker Hill Green, BM Nile Green, BM Irish Moss, Behr Pine Scent, and Behr Mossy Green, but ultimately settled on BM Grassy Fields.
I have been wanting a green dresser for several years, (I have especially loved the green campaign style dresser) but finally pulled the trigger on a vintage traditional English-style piece. We are renovating our upstairs above our garage to create two bedrooms out of one large space. Below are some inspiration photos of green lacquered dressers, chests, hutches, etc. I would love to design her room with the following elements, starting with this green dresser: blue and white chinoiserie lamps or vases, pink or coral bold stripes, a pink vintage Kazak rug (I also found on ETSY), possibly a palm leaf print and/or other fun prints...I recently saw an adorable llama pattern that I love from Claire Bella Studio (see below). I can't wait to pull the room together! I put together an inspiration board of these ideas for her room...Happy Spring!
