In the last two months before we moved back into our house (after our house fire made us leave for nine months) I was frantically working on my daughters “new” bedroom furniture. She liked the idea of some Paris accents (lamps and pictures) so I was looking for a French/Italian style set. I found one on Craigslist for $35 and away I went, sanding and painting and waxing. (For more details on the painting check out the previous post.) I think this project was the reason my sister had to come over just before moving day and give me a big hand in packing ! 🙂 Well, here are some after pictures. Just to refresh your memory, I’ll begin with one before pic.
And now the best part:
When I was refinishing this set, I wasn’t sure how much to distress the pieces. In the end I was happy with the result. When you enter the room and glance at the furniture, they don’t look majorly distressed, but the up close pictures show you how much paint I did sand away. This fit my style since I’m not into very shabby chic.
In the near future, I hope to show you more pictures of how her bedroom turned out. We always tease her that she has the best room in the house. But she has to pay… by giving up her room for guests, so that’s a pretty good deal, isn’t it? 🙂
