My Bedroom Set

Sorry I can't get my text in the right place. I finished my bedroom set a couple months ago and I am finally getting around to posting it. I used this painting and glazing methods. I was inspired from this blog I love. It took a lot of work and I wasn't sure that I liked it at first. But it has grown on me and I wish I could find myself a round night stand but for now I have nothing. So my room is not finished as you can see by the mess in the closet area.

The first picture is the mirror that came with the set and even though I think it's beautiful it was too much for the room. Especially since I already have plenty of mirrors. I sold it on Craigslist. I mostly wanted you to see the before color. It weighs at least 80 pounds.

I didn't polyurethane after I painted which I should probably do in the future.

I asked my mom to make me a doily because I knew it would be perfect under a pitcher. I love how it looks.

Oooh, oooh, you did such a great job!!! I just found this post by following the link in your comment on the All Things Thrifty blog where you learned this technique. I am about to buy a console table tomorrow, off of Craigslist, and want to paint and glaze it. I am wondering how a white glaze over turquoise would work (it's an accent piece). I think you did an outstanding job on your bedroom set. Have you polyurethaned it yet? Wondering of the glaze comes off onto your bedding if you do not.

The glaze dries and stays on as wells as the paint. White with turquoise sounds fabulous! I want to do turquoise but it doesn't really go with anything in my house. Maybe my next house. I haven't poyurethaned it yet. The problem is I like starting new projects and not finishing the old.
