"Will Paint for Furniture"


There's a reason behind the title of this post. Well there usually is, but sometimes it's more obvious. A few weeks ago I stopped at a yard sale and fell in love with 3 pieces they had for sale. I couldn't purchase them at the price they were asking. The owners and I struck up a conversation and before I left, they had hired me to paint a bedroom set. Later in the afternoon, they called and offered me the three pieces from the yard sale in exchange for the painting. YES! So here is the bedroom set.

These had been used in a nursery and now the owner wanted them updated for her growing boy. We decided on a color scheme and I went to work! I used ASCP Napoleonic Blue and Coco. I waxed them using ASCP Clear Wax and Dark Wax. Enjoy the after pics!

The owner wanted to keep the original drawer pulls. I think they make the pieces look great!

    I think I like the high boy best, but you did a fine job on all of them. Did you enjoy doing your new bartered pieces?
