This is often the question.
When I purchase pieces to refinish of course I choose things I like, some more than others, but
when they are finished there is often the question as to whether I should keep it or send it to a new home.
Such was (ok-still is) the case with this bedroom set.
Bare with me- I'm not sure who took these before pictures. Obviously someone
with serious sleep deprivation.
Yuk-I don't know if the pictures or the original finish are worse.
I couldn't resist the familiar pull of Heirloom White spray paint on these, but also decided on some distressing and antiquing with Ralph Lauren's Tea Stain glaze. I wanted the handles to pop a bit more than what they were in the present state so I sprayed them with my other go-to, Oil Rubbed Bronze (or ORB as known in the blogger world).
I don't love the mirror on it, as is, but I think it would be cute hanging on the wall above the dresser- and perhaps the other direction.
So now, do I put these in my youngest daughter's room, which I am currently making over? Grandma says 'Yes!' but then again, my lovely mother thinks I should keep everything I finish. Oh mom, thanks for your support. I may need it when I'm on an episode of hoarding...
