I painted three coats of Benjamin Moore’s Linen White to brighten it up… BM Linen White happens to be my all-time favorite color. When painted in a bright, sunny room it really soars. Don’t use it in a dark room or it will look dingy. Benjamin Moore’s Linen White is different than other paint manufacturer’s linen whites. It has more yellow to it which makes it a warmer white.
My walnut dresser did not sell the first day at Lucketts and I decided that after all of the back breaking work involved in restoring it, I was not going to reduce the price. So, back into the van it went and upstairs to my new bedroom! I added the sweet shutters I purchased over the weekend. I am planning on eventually hanging them but they are super heavy and will need to be screwed into a stud which requires more time than I have at the moment. I think they look great just resting against the wall for now.
Another tip – if you paint a room an off-white color, make sure to paint your trim a bright white for contrast and try to add more bright white elements in. I happen to love the look of whites and creams layered against each other.
