Sweet Dreams

I say it to my girls every night before bed, "sweet dreams".  It's our true wish to have a restful sleep, full of only happy, dreamy thoughts.  Maybe this could help them achieve that.
I just finished this vintage Basset bedroom set in the last week.  It's pretty sweet and ready for a young lady somewhere out there!
It boasts a full sized bed with a decorative headboard and footboard.  Some pretty little french provincial lines.  The set is painted in Old White with some distressing for a shabby chic feel.
Here is a before picture of the desk/vanity showing it's age and potential all at the same time!

Look at her now all freshened up. 
Do you see the potential for a desk here like I do?  That little tray lifts out, and those 3 long slots would make a great area for a charging station with a simple hole drilled in the back and a multiplug bar mounted underneath or behind.  If not it also makes a great place to sit and dream and learn to put your makeup on.
Here's a close up of that gorgeous pink/gray/green fabric that covers the seat and lines the drawers!
Finally there's the highboy dresser.  Wow, I love this piece.  It is still in pristine condition inside the dove tailed drawers.  I refinished the top in English Chestnut, an homage to the original set color.  It just seems like such a stately piece to me!

I don't know about you, but I think only sweet dreams belong here.

More to come this week!  Deb
