I truly love this color, Fieldstone by Benjamin Moore, it's a perfect gray. If it looks slightly blue-ish in these photos then it's Picasa's fault! :)
And thanks to Olympic ONE paint plus Floetrol, this might be the best finish I've got on something before (aside from my oil based paints).
I love the knobs. Such a steal for $1 a piece from Michaels! Plus I got one 40% haha.
The previous painter had painted EVERTHING, including the insides of the drawers. Luckily they're white so I didn't need to touch them.
Yeah, even the sides and undersides of the drawers were blue. Effort!
If you remember (it's okay, it's been a LONG time ago-- find it here), I got it for $35 from the local Restore.
And lastly, a before and after for happiness sake:
Now it has a calmer presence :) I'm debating turning it into an island in the kitchen (since $350 for one at Ikea is a bit 'spensive... and common). I'm not sure how sturdy it is though, I can sit on it but I'm not exactly heavy. I think if I added beadboard to the back and put a wood top on it with room to slide 2 small tools underneath it it'd be cute! We'll see though.
