So this is my first post on this site but im a long time reader.
Anyway,  Im really into refinishing trashed pieces of furniture and these are a set i just did for my apartment im moving into in a couple weeks.  I think they'll look great in my bedroom im just not sure if theres somthing missing or not.

You did a great job refinishing them both! My mother and sister agree. (all three of us pick up furniture too) We all love the colors. Both pieces really look like a formal set together.

These are really great.  Cheesy

Did you put some kind of finish on the wood after you painted them? What kind of paint did you use?

I have a vintage vanity table that I need to repaint.

These are absolutely beautiful!!! Did the desk already have drawers or did you have to make new drawers?
