I have been working in my daughter's room for the past few days. I am painting her bedroom furniture white. Not a true white, but an off white. I wanted to distress it a little, but she likes it just the way it looked after two coats of paint. Less work for me! We will be looking for new hardware this weekend.
My father made this picket fence headboard a few years ago. I painted it brown which actually dried purple! Not the look we were going after. It is back to white! Her walls are a pretty shade of purple, not the drab tan it looks like in this picture.
