When picking a paint color, have you ever looked at the paint chip and drooled over the entire range of colors? It's not so much one color that catches your eye, but all the shades of a color together. Who says you have to pick just one?
Pick all the colors on the paint chip and use them for your project. The effect you'll get is this ombre painted dresser. The top drawers are the palest pink and each drawer is just a brighter shade of the previous as you work your down. The overall look is colorful without being over the top. By the way, if you're curious about the rest of this nursery, check out the tour on Project Nursery.
