Good bye orange, hello shabby

We have a pine linen press that has served us well.  It's narrow depth means it can provide storage in narrow spaces and it has provided storage in three different homes.  I continue to like the utility of this piece but she needed a new appearance.  Despite the below 0 outside, I decided it was time to do some painting.
Here she is in all her orange-y glory.

And redone with green and white paint to look well used…

Ignore the doorknobs.  I need to go shopping.  I think I want some glass knobs.

But now the walls need to be repainted and new flooring placed…

  1. It looks so much better in that paint you applied. Love the pale color. I love a narrow piece. They are so versatile. I have a similar one in my foyer. It comes in handy for hats, gloves, and scarves.
