It all started with the bed(that I don't have a before picture of). I loved the 4 post bed & it was exactly what I had been looking for the year before for my daughter's room. Of course finding 2 that match is nearly impossible! Trust me, I looked for months & months! I picked up the nightstand with the dresser that ended up in my daughter's hang out. Then I scoured CL until I found another piece that would match. I don't know why I thought it would sell better if I had matching pieces. It turns out that the bed sold & the other 2 pieces are still looking for a good home. I painted everything Provence & stained the tops in a dark walnut. I just love the look of the Provence with the dark top! I was able to keep the original hardware for both pieces, they just needed to be cleaned.
I already stripped the top. I'm not very good at getting before pictures, I tend to jump in with both feet & then remember the pictures!
