"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...

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 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."
