New Bedroom Suite

Remember when I showed you the desk I got off of Craigslist?

Well when I got that desk I also got a dresser, nightstand and mirror. 

Oops I forgot to take a picture before I took off the hardware. 
BAD Blogger, Bad!
I also forgot to take a picture of the mirror too!! 

Here is a picture of the handles AFTER I spray painted them silver.
I am losing my blogging-before-pictures MOJO people!!

I decided to go with white, since I have the never ending can of white paint.
Then I glazed the pieces.


To me these pieces look pretty girly. Maybe it is because I am itching to do something girly, but I just do not see these pieces in a little boys room. 
And since I have already shown you a sneak peak, you know that I used some pink.

This will be the first time I have bought something pink to do any decorating!
It was a big day people!

I wasn't sure what kind of pink I should go with when I went to the store.
When I went to the spray paint aisle and I saw a pink can called Sweet Pea.

Sweet Pea was my dad's nick name for me. 

My decision was made. 
I do believe I got a little emotional about the Sweet Pea cans, cuz I ended up buying 4 cans. 

I used 1 and a half cans.

 I do foresee some pink decorations in my household.

With the pink I spray painted the drawers.
Then I found this wrapping paper that was pink and brown and frenchy. 


I sprayed down some adhesive, cut the paper to size and now I have a cute liner!

The bottom drawers are actually 2 drawers in one.

Which is perfect to hold all the million sweaters you need up here in the next couple of months!

One of the top drawers has a jewerly holder.

 How cute is that?

I was even able to save the Bassett emblem.

The nightstand is my favorite.
This was such a fun project for me and it went really fast! 

For the record, I had every intention of taking the pictures of the finished product outside, since it has been so pretty the past couple of days.
Unfortunately I didn't consult with the weather forecast when I made this decision because it was dark and rainy ALL DAY!
Which is why the pictures are so dark. 

Anyways, all you Chicagolanders I am selling the set for $350. 
Let me know.

I am posting to these parties

Have a great weekend!

I just brought home twins to this set last weekend from my local thrift store(and blogged about it). Im planning on painting them when we re-do our master BR this fall/winter(like my flexibility on that time frame? haha)
Its always fun to see what people do with something similar I own.

Oh I'm with you, the night stand is my favorite! I love how the pink shows, but especially once there's stuff in it, it won't be overwhelmingly pink. So cute!

I love the surprise of pink when you open the drawers! Such a great touch! You showing the Bassett emblem touched my heart...I grew up in the tiny town of Bassett, Va where all the furniture was made back in the day! Brings back memories! Thanks for sharing!

BB said...

There must be no end to the number of these bedroom sets they created in the 60's and 70's they just keep popping up at thrift stores and yard sales all over the place..I have done 2 of them myself.. and am working on a third.. it' like recurring dream.. the same project over and over

Laurie Jones said...

So pretty! I'm with you the nightstand is my favorite too, just enough pink, not too much not too little!!

marilyn said...

OH MY HEAVENS!!! That's my dresser!! I got it, along with the headboard when I was about 14. My husband has the matching chest of drawers. If everyone promises not to do the math, I'll tell you how long I'v had it. About 45 years. And I still like it!
