The Charouleau Bedroom Collection

** I received Country Chic paint to complete this furniture makeover, however the opinions and thoughts expressed here are 100% my own. 

A Seventies Intervention

Oh good golly would you look at this?! You may have passed up a bedroom set just like this at a garage sale. What, why!? You don't think it's pretty? ;) Okay, you're right. It's hideous but ah, come on... it has the bones to be love-e-lee. We're going to transform this bedroom set into something spectacular for just $25. Yep, you read that right. Twenty-five, one dollar bills. With just a little paint, this bedroom makeover is going from drab to fab!

Take a gander at the hardware. They are exquisite, but they get swallowed up in the existing wood finish. Care for a close up? Friends, they just don't make hardware like they used to!

They also don't make wood like they used to. ;) I'd rather fix up an older all wood set any day then shell out $$ for a new set that may or may not contain particle board.

We unscrewed all of the hardware, grabbed a paint brush and some Country Chic Paint in Vanilla Frosting and went to work. After two and half layers of paint, we gave it light distressing and put it back together.

  1. I could live in your blog. Every single piece is such an inspiration to me. These were so humdrum before you got your hands on them. And now... simply majestic!!

  3. Oh my this is beautiful and wouldn't you know it. We just moved my dad to a retirement residence and he had the same bedroom furniture in mint condition not a scratch. No one in the family wanted it so my sister took it for a guest room. I will surely show her your makeover in hopes she lets me participate. Thank you wonderful job.

    1. What is the chance!? I'm so glad! Visualizing furniture painted in a particular color can be challenging sometimes. I hope your sister lets you help! What a fun project to work on together!
