*Holly Paint*

So I know my last post was promising a makeover of my son's room. Well, remember when I wrote that my husband was making a bunk bed because we are in the foster/adopt program so we wanted to be prepared when we had a placement? Well...we are excited to say that a little boy has come to live with us which means it is taking me a little longer to finish the room! This means I'm now working on painting a crib, a bigger dresser and a few other ideas. 
 I will post pictures as soon as I'm done. 

 In the mean time here are a few pictures of some before and afters that I finished a few weeks ago.

 This nightstand was sitting on the curb waiting for the garbage truck to pick it up.  I liked the columns on the side so I knew with some paint and updated it knobs it had some potential.

I picked up this small dresser at a garage sale.  I liked the size because it can be used as a dresser or a nightstand.  I painted it light turquoise and lightly distressed.  I found some clear acrylic flower knobs that added a little fun to the piece. 

 I picked up this sad looking dresser at a local thrift store.  I can never pass up a solid wood dresser and it has keyholes too. 
 If only it had the key!!

I  It was painted antique white and the top was stained dark walnut.

This cute little cabinet was given to me from a client...
Thanks Charlotte!! 

I haven't painted anything pink for awhile but I just felt like it needed a "girly" makeover.  I painted it a light pink, distressed lightly and sprayed the knob white.  
I'm going to be looking for more pieces like this one!
