Hello my Shabby loving friends!
It is spring time in my home and that means loads of spring cleaning and painting things white!!
I have been wanting to paint my bedroom set white for some time now.
I finally decided to go for it! I have had this furniture for years and it was beautiful as it was, but I have been ready for a change.Click here to view the Shabby Chic Bedroom makeover video tour.
Here is the after photo of my nightstand, bed, picture and dresser!!
I actually mixed up my own chalk paint to do this project.
It was super simple!
The recipe I used was easy just mix 1 cup of latex paint with 1/2 cup of baking soda.
I suggest to mix this very well and only mix it up right before you plan your project.
The finish of the paint was a little grainy but that doesn't bother me a bit because I wanted the shiny furniture to have more of a vintage feeling.
I was super lucky to find a King size bedding set at our local resale shop. It was brand new in the package and I only paid $15!!! Say what???
Let me tell you I was over the moon excited!!!
I added these sweet pillow shams that are a Marie Antoinette quilted pattern. I found these at our local Cadwell's flea market booth in my sweet friend Beth's booth.
They are a King size sham and you can find king size pillows at Wal-Mart for $8.88. They are for decoration and I love how they give the bed a really comfy cozy feeling!
My favorite things to decorate with are soft rose fabrics, scrolly mirrors, heart pillows, vintage painted Shabby furniture, rose plate and other various vintage treasures.
I love vintage pieces that have a history behind them.
The sweet dress on the dress form is from a lovely lady I met, it was from her debutante ball!
Her story was precious.
My mom is definitely the one who got me hooked on vintage treasures.
She always furnished our homes with neat vintage and antique pieces.
She blessed me with all of the lamps in this room. Of course I had to paint all of the bases of the lamps a Shabby Chic white.
The photo above our bed was a sweet gift for me from my husband Josh for our Anniversary.
I hope you enjoyed this Shabby Chic bedroom makeover tour.
