Q: We have a dresser very similar to this (plus a matching bed and side table). I've never liked it, but it came with my husband, and I am quite fond of him so I've lived with it for 10 years. Now we are moving, and I'd like our new bedroom to be all white. My question is...do you think this dresser (and it's corresponding pieces) would look good painted white? Or should I lobby for new furniture (not really in the budget)...or just accept that I'll be living with Mexican knotty pine for the long run?

Editor: It seems everything can be helped with a fresh coat of paint! We think painting these pieces white would be an improvement - readers, do you agree?
