My Bedroom Makeover: Part 1 Refinishing Vintage Furniture.

It seems as a designer we save our homes for last. I was inspired by my new pillow from Jennifer Lanne and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. My furniture is being transformed by Dawn from Hydrangea Home this week and my Bella Notte Linens bedding.

Almost 9 years in my house and my bedroom seemed to always get pushed to last because of an urgent project. This year I decided to treat myself to a beautiful bedroom.This is where it all starts. 

I took over a guest bedroom in the house since it is my favorite and converted my old room into Ava Rose's playroom. 

The first project was to paint my parents 1950's furniture. It is beautiful solid wood furniture with lovely curves but the top coat yellowed over the years and though it is hard to see in these photos it also turned green in places. 

Not a pretty vintage patina at all. So in comes the amazing Dawn from Hydrangea Home Dawn worked her magic with Annie Sloan paint and without having to sand it down she painted right over the pieces. 

It was fun to see my furniture transformed and I now I love it! I also had fun with Dawn working right out of my house and catching up on shop talk, design projects and tips on balancing raising children with running a business. 

Dawn is a true inspiration.
