Sweet Lilac

This is part one of a two part makeover post! 

A client of mine found two matching nightstands off of Craig's List and quickly requested a makeover on both. Here's how they looked when she first picked them up {sorry for the blurry phone pic!}. . .

One is going in her new baby girl's nursery {new as in - baby will join the fam in August} and the other is going in big sis's new 'big girl' room.  FUN!

For the nursery nightstand, my client requested purple.  We selected the most beautiful paint color, one of Annie Sloan's - it's called Emile.   It's my first time painting with it, and although I likely wont be using the color in my own home {remember, I have my husband, two little boys & one more little guy on the way and a male dog}, I'd love to paint with this color again.  It turned out to be the softest, most subtle purple - so feminine and girly - lilac beautiful.

Love the hardware as much as I do? It's from World Market- which means quality at a great price!

We'll be back in a few days to post about nightstand number two!

  1. Beautiful. I have yet to use this color and it looks really lovely. It really brings out the curves on the legs. I also love the knob.

  2. That color is unique and pretty and the legs are just amazing! I haven't even mentioned the hardware which is perfect for the set! Love this!'
    Thanks for linking up this week!

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
