My first trio

A couple of weeks ago I listed a table I refinished on Craigslist.  Here is a before and after:
 I had a lady contact me and ask me if I could make a matching headboard to go with it and refinish a dresser that she currently had to make a matching set for her little girl.  I began scouring CL for twin headboards and it must've been my lucky day because I found the PERFECT one.

Guess where?  The FREE section!!  OMG I couldn't believe it.  I immediately contacted them and arranged a pick up for the next day.  I thought it was awesome already, but I had to make it match.  So I sanded, primed and painted it to match the nightstand.  Here it is after:

                                             and here it is as a matching set:
When she came to pick them up she dropped off her darling 3 drawer dresser for me to paint to match.  It was so cute that I wanted to keep it for myself ;)
                                      And here are a couple of after shots:




I just love it and she seemed to love it too which made my day.

  5. Lovely! I am definitely in the mood for an aqua blue accent...considering I just painted a birdcage that color, tee hee. :)

    And there's a free section? I was JUST browsing Craigslist and thinking everyone in my neck of the woods must be crazy if they think people are spending that kind of money on old furniture. I must now go back and see the free section. :)

  11. Hi Dayna!

    Found you through Coastal Charm...

    What a sweet set! I've never thought to look at the free section of CL for furniture--that's a brilliant idea. The color and glazing on those pieces is just perfect. I can easily see why your customer was so pleased!
