Remember the bedroom suit I picked up on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago? I wrote a post on the curvy dresser, but by the time I finished the other pieces I was a quite tired of white. As a matter of fact, I was so tired of it I didn't even want to blog about it! I am over that now, cured by cranking out some colorful pieces. I painted each of these pieces with my favorite Dove White by Valspar. It is truly the most perfect shade of white.
|Before of the nightstand, oops can't find one of the chest~|
|Love those curves!|
|Light distressing, so pretty on the white~|
|I kept the original hardware~|
Same treatment for the matching nightstand~
I have had this bed in the garage for a while, it was the same basic style so I made it to match~
If I haven't made you tired of white yet here are the details of the makeovers~
I started by sanding, I used spray primer to block the red mahogany bleed through. It still bleeds even though it is completely sanded, I don't understand why but it's a fact. Then I painted with three coats of white, I sanded between coats for a smooth finish. I finished each piece off with 2 coats of wipe on poly. I was very pleased to be able to work with such lovely, high quality furniture and now that I've had a break I think I am ready for more classic white!
