Although we're completely revamping the bedroom, I couldn't bring myself to part with anything but the old king size pencil post bed.
I actually love all the pieces that went along with the bed, so we're keeping them. We purchased the entire set at an unfinished furniture store back in 1989 and then "we" (aka hubby) stained it dark brown (Jacobean Minwax).
It has served us well over the years and the drawers are as strong and sturdy as they were when we first bought it.
Of course Baby had to check everything out before we started painting.
I got all of the pieces painted within 2 days because we had a tight deadline. The painting had to be done before the floor people arrived.
Mission accomplished! The floors went down and the newly painted furniture went back into the bedroom.
Painting everything white really gave the set a whole new look. By putting an applique above the mirror....
... and replacing the old wooden knobs with glass ones, the set took on more of a cottage/farmhouse look rather than the previous country/primitive look.
One thing that didn't change was the boudoir chair that I've had for close to ten years. I always said that when I eventually updated the bedroom, this chair would be the inspiration for my color scheme.
And is this not the cutest little vintage wicker hamper? $4 at Savers. I couldn't pass it by!
More of the bedroom to come. There's still a LOT to be done, but little by little!
Have a great week, everyone!
