I am the proud new owner of of some map and chart type drawers. My husband found them for me, and I always wanted to put my glass in them to keep it cleaner and more organized.
The downside is that they're a little rusty and crusty, which will require some good scouring and new paint. (and crossed fingers that the drawers move a little more easily.)
So now I get to choose my paint color I'm thinking something like a Rustoleum product, might be the best for them. And I'm not sure which one to choose. There are two...as of right now. Aqua is my favorite color. Oh surely I love many, but this shade always makes me smile. It reminds me of the beach and happiness,
Then there's my other side - the practical me, (my inner Gemini is showing). I wonder if a nice, basic neutral might be easier on the eyes, and just blend a bit more, as the years go on. I like this khaki shade of neutral. It would go with everything.
The glass will be hidden away inside of the drawers once it's painted. I'm going for a little more organization in the studio...it's currently a little too crazy in there right now. So many items and too little space- a typical artisan's lament.
So what do you think? Which would you choose?
