If you follow me on instagram (dwellingsbydevore) you saw a little peek at this bamboo hutch I picked up from Craigslist for a steal. I've been really drawn to bamboo furniture lately and although it's a trendy thing right now, I feel like it's a classic that I'll love for a long time.
It's going to go in the office where the black hutch currently is. I know what you're thinking. Didn't you just give that hutch a makeover? Yes, but this bamboo piece is just what I was looking for and I think I'll be able to sell the other one on Craigslist for at least what I bought this one for. It's served us well while we've had it, but it's time for a change.
Here's the dilemma. What color do I paint the new hutch? I feel like faux bamboo furniture looks awesome when it's painted a bright bold color. Here's a picture of the other side of the office. It will go on the opposite wall.
Somehow yellow has been creeping into my rooms lately as an accent color. I've never really thought of yellow as my favorite color and I was actually kind of tired of it after having it in our Old Master Bedroom for so long. But then I find myself being drawn to it in our new home. So, I'm thinking of maybe painting it yellow. I don't want it to look tacky or ridiculous so picking the right shade will be crucial. I'm thinking I will probably keep the inside white to keep it from feeling too overwhelming. My husband thinks I should go more neutral in case I change my mind, but I'm so torn. It's been sitting in our garage way too long so it's time or me to make a decision!
I'm thinking something along the lines of this.
I'm also thinking about painting the top half of the room black or maybe doing grasscloth. There is crown molding around the ceiling and the lower half has molding as well and is painted white. This space is really open to the rest of the downstairs (no doors or anything) so I have to keep in mind how it will flow with the rest of the downstairs.
So what do you think? Am I totally crazy for wanting to paint it yellow or can you see the vision for it? Do you have a suggestion for the *perfect* shade of yellow? I guess if it doesn't work out I'm only out the cost of a quart of paint so I think I might just go for it.
