SOOOO excited to share my moms Master bedroom Furntiure makeover with all of you.
It took most of day to paint all these pieces but we are sold on the chalk paint! No sanding no priming just start painting! We worked our little buns off to create this new soothing new space for my cute mom and loved every minute of it!
Here is the before- the room is painted a soft lavender so we left the walls but we removed the heavy toile curtains that blocked a lot of light and kept the white sheers. The furniture is kind of dated so my mom decided to paint most of it with Annie Sloan's Paris grey chalk paint. We also bought some fresh new all white bedding which made all the difference, plus a few new accessories to add a little sparkle.
We removed the headboard and painted it with Annie Sloan's Paris Grey and HELLO it takes on a whole new look!
Next up was the dresser on the other side of the room...seriously look at the before pictures below, it always blows my mind when we paint a piece of furniture and how stunning it turns out!
We left the wrought iron detailing black on the dresser to flow with the handles but we painted out all the wrought iron on the headboard...I like it both ways.
Can you even take it?! Just look at the difference!
Here is my cute mom and daughter working on yet another piece...this time we used
Annie Sloan's Old White
This is the before...a beautiful French looking piece that mom bought 40 years ago from a friend and it actually has some smoke damage from a fire that it was in and it still looked very pretty but mom wanted a lighter look. We realized after we painted it...the old oils and smoke damage started to come through a bit.
It turned out a little creamier than mom wanted it but I think it looks gorgeous!
We added some fabric behind the doors to peek through the little railings
We bought the white comforter set from Target..it is a bit wrinkled here..sorry I was not about to iron or steam it..... it is just beautiful. I found the grey pillow, the French writing pillow and the textured white pillow from Home Goods as well and the scrumptious soft grey throw.
Love the texture on the comforter.
