Bedroom Set Makeover

A few weekends ago I refinished a bedroom set for my 8 year old niece.  It was the set she has been using, and the bed frame and dresser were actually her mom's (my sister-in-law's) furniture from when she was a little girl.  I thought that was pretty cool!  They were in the process of moving, so we thought it would be a good time for a change...so little Bethany could have cute new furniture for her new room!
I picked out colors that I thought would match her new quilt.  For the bed frame I went with 
Valspar's Churchill Hotel Vanilla


For the dresser and night stand I used Churchill Hotel Vanilla also, but I painted the drawers Shiitake


I picked out a cute knob from Hobby Lobby for the night stand that I thought went really well with the quilt!!








 Because the night stand was laminate, I decided to go ahead and use Cover Stain on the entire set before I painted it.
Here is the dresser before it got it's makeover:


It was a fun project!  I got to do what I love AND hang out with my sister-in-law, who watched my baby while I painted!!

  9. LOOKS GREAT!!! You definitely have a creative bone in your body. I would never see what you see in a piece of furniture, although I am learning.
