*Holly Paints*

I was able to hit an estate sale last month that had this bedroom set for sale. It is solid wood and in great condition so I couldn't pass it up.

I had wanted to paint it white and distress but because it was already a white color I knew the distressing wouldn't show up.  So I decided that a color was the only way to go.  I mixed my own light turquoise paint and got to work.   I then painted the top a pearl white.  I stained the whole piece to age it a little.  It turned out to be a  really beautiful set. 

Primitive and Proper


  1. Ooh...I love it!! I love the color and the cute keyhole like hardware on the big one. Great makeover!

  2. love the color on them- it was the perfect choice to give them some life!

  3. What a beautiful job on already beautiful pieces - just love the scale of the end tables!!!
    Definitely your newest follower - would love to have you follow back when you have the time!

  4. Ooh these are cute, I love the flower detail on the side. Nice one.

  5. just lovely - i have the desk to match the set. i've looked everywhere around here for the dresser for our "girl room" (we're in the process of fostering to adopt and decided to go with gender rooms, lol) but to no avail. you hit jackpot!
