Pick up a mid-century style dresser or desk from a garage sale or thrift store, choose your favourite color palette, and paint each drawer a different shade in that palette. Leave the wood frame as is like the piece above or paint it white.
For inspiration: Painted cross-stitch on walls. You could project a regular cross stitch pattern on the wall, use colored pencils lightly to mark the colors in the design, and then just paint over them using acryic paint. Just gorgeous!
