Hey there! So over the past few months I've really been working on the paint colors in our house. I've been really pleased with how everything is coming together but I can't nail down a few things for my closet area (which is really a landing on our second floor).
I know I want to go back in with the dark color in a few different spots but the combination has me a little stumped. There are shoe shelves to the right of the orange pillow that will definitely be getting a coat of paint. However, I'm also thinking about donating those shelves and adding some built in shelves and painting those. I think that's definitely the more finish route I could take, but the commitment phobe in me is nervous to add permanent shelving (even though this area will probably always be my closet space).
I'm also toying with the idea of painting the white trim that frames out the built in drawers. I wouldn't paint all of the trim in the whole room, just sides and upper strip. I'm thinking that may help the darkness be a bit more substantial...right now that area just looks wimpy to me. I really think that drawer fronts will also be painted. I'm not really afraid of making this space too dark since we have pitch ceilings that will be remaining white. Last but not least, the wood paneling. I already know that my mom would tell me to leave it (it helps keep away something but I can't remember what right now). The thing is, this stuff was installed rather poorly and pieces have actually fallen out before. I don't really care for it and I think the wood competes with my dress...and it's loosing.
So what do you guys think? I go back and forth in wanting to paint everything mentioned or just the built in shoe shelves, wood panelling, and drawer fronts and leaving the trim white.
