Another painting project, before and after

Before:
After:
(I know it is missing one handle.  One of the original ones has been broken a while.  When I was reading one of the blogs I follow a few days ago Twice Lovely, I saw they have a new online shop selling furniture hardware, I was able to find the match for Kate's dresser and it did arrive today so it is complete now!)

I painted with one coat of paint/ primer and one coat of paint - "spring cactus", the same green as my desk I just painted


Here is a before picture of the nightstand:

The nightstand was another Goodwill find and you can read more about it here

and after:

I am really happy with how they look in Kate's room

To read the story behind Kate's bed, read here

The colorful quilt at the end of her bed is from Land of Nod, but I got it at a garage sale for $10!




and her curtains are from IKEA


pretty clean green dresser, now like brand new furniture!
