Vintage Nursery Set From Grandmother Then and Grandmother Now


As of lately I am painting a ton of nursery sets. This one stole my heart from the beginning. The grandmother wanted to have the set her grandmother had given to her mother for her to her new grandbaby on the way. She told me of a note on the bottom drawer of the armoire. The very drawer she had slept in as a baby, her first night home. She told me the set was in horrible shape, but she was sure that I could bring it back to life again. I am so blessed to do what I do.

They wanted a beautiful, muted soft pink. They chose Behr's Cloud Pink and gold accents. After many hours of stripping and sanding I was able to breathe new life and a ton of love into these cherished pieces!
