White Bedroom Furniture

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.

I love this bedspread, so many pretty colors. That leads to a lot of pretty pillows. I love mixing all the prints together!

Looks beautiful so far. Can't wait to see it all finished.

The furniture is looking great. I wouldn't have to worry about distressing with my boys. They take care of that part FOR me!

I like offwhite paint on furniture too. It has a sort of French elegance to it. Sounds like you are having fun with this decorating project.

Cindy, hopefully it will be done by the weekend.
Lorilee, I love the distressed look. My daughter however does not. But that it OK it is her room!
Lavin1a, I am having fun with this project. It is something I really must finish!

Lovely! I would prefer the distressed look also, but it's not a look everyone likes. The off white will be a clean look with purple walls. The fence headboard is darling. Can't wait to see what kind of drawer pulls you add.I'll check back to see the finished room.

I like the colors of the bed clothes, so rich and sassy. I want to see the finished product when you're done, please.
