More posh paint.

I have been experimenting a bit more with different brands of paint. As our living room is getting a lot lighter, I found my eye kept getting drawn towards the dark wood of the dresser. For a while I have been suggesting to Hubby that the dresser might look better painted, but neither of us felt confident about it.
After a spur-of-the-moment trip to Laura Ashley, I was sucked in by their 25% off sale on paint and wallpaper and decided to go for it.

A few hours later (thereabouts) and here is what it looks like now. I painted the wood with 'pale twine' eggshell paint and lined the alcoves with chalk pink 'blythe' wallpaper. (We have the same in green in our bedroom.)
