OMG! Sharon you have just done a wonderful painting job on all those pieces of furniture. And all the decorations on them just make them so perfect for a little princess room. Love it all, and kudos to you for being so creative. Can't wait now to see the completed room. ;o) Luvs

Thanks luvs. I had a ball doing this despite each of the 9 pieces had 2-3 coats of primer, 2-3 coats of semi gloss & 2 coats of varnish!
The pics don't show it but there are aurora bourealis (sp) stones scattered amid the detailing on the wooden medallions, etc. all of the furniture is edged in the 14k gold paint pens. The Cinderella on the headboard is removable for later years when her 'theme' has changed. I will certainly take room photos when I get it all done. I will get in PA on 8/25 and after a couple days rest & reuniting w/friends & family, will begin Chloe's castle!

Adorable to say the least. That furniture will make sure your GD knows she's a little princess. Can't wait to see everything completed. You have put alot of work into all that refinishing and to think about the future with a removable center peice is outstanding.

Sharon, you did a fantastic job - The paint job looks wonderful and the little girl on the head board is darling,

Now, just being curious, where did the hutch come from, it looks like the same style furniture. And the bed is so cute. Just love it all.

Hi Gals,
Well I finally made it to PA with all the furniture & 3 fllweeks of priming, faux painting, & the 4 mural with scenes from the Cinderells story. My Kitchen Table forum friend Tammy, will be posting around 10 pics tomorrow-I just sent them to her do post as my msn until has no access tostore pic on a website; So keep checking the Kitchen Table forum & yoy'll see what I've been up to, since Jan actually, when I began the refinish on the furniture posted here. I especially love the pic of my DGD's smiling face, as she is proudly sitting in her 'kingdom'!
