The Hardest Part of a Project Is Selecting Paint Colors
I need help selecting paint colors. The cabinet above is the one from the post Should I Buy The Antique Radio Cabinet. You can tell by the looks why I asked the question in the original post. The JTS did all kinds of repairs to it plus removing the radio from inside and making shelves!
Now that the JTS is finished with his part……I’m up next. The reason I’ve put off this project is because I don’t know what color to paint it. You guys might think that is silly but it’s the most important part of the project…especially this project. I love vintage radio cabinets and I’ve painted several. None of them have lived up to my first radio cabinet makeover.
This is the first cabinet I painted and it’s the one furniture piece I’m known for in blogland. The color is Tricycle Red and it’s Milk Paint.
I don’t want to paint the latest cabinet red. I’ve painted a turquoise/green one, a white one, and a yellow one. None have lived up to the red one. I’m working on selecting paint colors but still haven’t made a final decision.
I’m thinking of using Benjamin Moore paint and I found color inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram. I have never used Benjamin Moore but I hear it’s fantastic.
I was going to get the paint yesterday but we had the granddaughters and the day was so rainy and yucky we didn’t go anywhere.
These are a few of the colors I’m considering….
Benjamin Moore Covington Blue
Benjamin Moore Buxton Blue
Benjamin Moore Stratton Blue
Benjamin Moore Secret
Benjamin Moore Deep Secret
What do you guys think of the colors. Do you like the muted blues or the gray tones, or something different?
