Before & After! Turquoise bed

This twin bed was found on one of my many excursions to the local D.I.!
I Love the tall posts!
It also had a small 3 drawer dresser that matched.
The dresser had a Basset tag inside a drawer,
along with some gum!
I left the tag, removed the gum.
The worst part of revamping furniture for me is the cleaning before you paint.
I thought this lovely bed needed some interesting paint to fit its uniqueness!
Before

Ta DA!
After

I loved this paint so much, and it looks great on the dresser!


The paint was really bright, until I put a coat of Jacobean min- wax stain on it.
I added a couple of glass knobs to dress it up a little and
I am thinking gorgeous!

I have been working on this beautiful table.
I am stripping the top to stain and keep it natural
and then I will paint the bottom.



I found a killer deal on these parsons chairs!
$25.00 a piece off KSL classified ads, and there are 6!
Z gallerie has some slip covers that are fun & beautiful!
check them out here!

Miss Melanie...

So glad I found your cute blog! You and I share a passion. I've got a list of furniture waiting to be refinished. I want to come to your house and get inspired on what I might do with my treasures. We should get together and go to DI, because I hear you like that place as much (or even more if that is possible) as I do.
