"I was really happy to find this two-piece bedroom set on Craigslist. So often the night stand and dresser have parted ways so it's always a plus to find the pair still together. The set checked off my usual criteria when selecting furniture for a redo...dove tail drawer construction, dust liners between drawer layers, and a solid build. And extra credit for super cute hardware!

After a thorough sanding, I used...

Color crush! Jessica at Totally Shabbique​ restyled this charming buffet with a custom mix of Coral Crush and Persimmon Milk Paints.

It's not very often that I use General Finishes Persimmon, as orange isn't a common colour for furniture. I am LOVING how this 1930's vanity turned out with the burnt orange distressed look!! This one already has a home.

How sweet is this makeover in a custom mix of General Finishes Coral Crush, Brick Red, Persimmon and Snow White? These went out the door last week as a custom order. This dresser and changing table had been in their family for years and needed to be updated to fit the newly decorated room. Original knobs were a shiny gold color, so they had to go! We love these and think the new pieces are fresh and fun!! - Shannon of Refurbished by Sweet Threepeats​

How fabulous is this Persimmon piece by The Green Bureau?! "OK, so orange isn’t for everyone, but there’s no denying that this piece is FUN FUN FUN! First time using General Finishes Persimmon Milk Paint, and I have to say, it’s a really good orange. An orange that’s too bright can look decidedly juvenile, but Persimmon has just enough spice to keep it looking both modern and mature. This piece is now available in our booth at Now Then and Again."

Angela of Number Fifty-Three​ gave this nightstand a bright and happy new look. "So, for this piece I started with a base of deep gray - General Finishes Queenstown Gray. For the main color I did a custom blend of GF's Persimmon and Coral Crush. That resulted in a gorgeous coral color than had more undertones of orange than pink."
