Ways to update my Mediterranean bedroom furniture?
I want to redecorate my master bedroom, which right now looks very European / Mediterranean - especially the furniture. I don't have a problem deciding on what I want to do with the walls, floors, windows, lighting, etc; but I'm procrastinating starting the project because every time I look at my very Tuscany looking bedroom set, I draw a blank. The dresser and night stands have very dark marble tops. The wood is a deep, dark mahogany; there dark brown iron scrolls on everything, and especially the bed head and footboard. Ideally, I'd like a transitional, traditional leaning, tranquil space: a space that is timeless and not so "themed". I just don't have the funds to buy new bedroom furniture ... any ideas on how to make the furniture I have look more transitional would be most appreciated! I'm attaching pictures of the furniture. There is also a large TV armoire that has all the same features. I could actually get rid of that piece and get some kind of unobtrusive flat screen TV stand.
