Painted Furniture

Showing my picture yesterday of the turquoise dresser in our upstairs hallway brought to mind a few other pieces of furniture that my daughter painted in 2013.  This telephone booth was her first try at adding something other than color to a piece.  This piece is an old metal file cabinet!!!  She uses it in her bedroom as a side table.

This yellow nightstand
was found in a Goodwill store in Maryland I think too .  My oldest daughter needed a night stand for one of her rooms so Sarah painted it and distressed it a little to match the quilt I'd just made her.  The quilt is all yellow, grey and black.

And last but not least, this is an old children's dresser that she found in a barn like store in the next town over from us.  She wanted a unique tv stand and as you can tell, is obsessed with english things....   I actually think from looking closely that the drawers are not closed so the stripes look a little "off".    

NOW....if she'd just make a decision and do something with the old pieces she's got out in the garage she'd make her father a happy man!!!

Wow, those are great pieces! I've done a small amount of furniture painting, but nothing as nice as hers. I don't have the patience to wait for all the coats to dry and then I begin to loose interest and have to force myself to finish!
