Furniture Revamp Challenge -- Part 2 (Colors & Prep)

So, when I found out I was getting new furniture (new to me anyway).  I did what any other person would... I went to trusty ol' Pinterest and started looking up design ideas. 

 I first went searching for color pallets that I liked, and I found this.

I love love love beachy colors! 
they are so fresh and clean and relaxing...

I have found in the last few years that I am more happy with my design choices if i kind of step out of my rut comfort zone and go for something I wouldn't initially think I would like.  So that was my mission.  The past few times I have redone something for the bedroom I love it at first and within a month I hate it!  I wasn't going to let that happen this time!  

I printed the above color pallet and a few others and took them to the store and tried to find swatches to match.  

So i picked up my colors

I found a few really awesome pins of people who did their bedside tables in Silver spray paint, and then some even did silver leafing, all of which looked amazing!  like this one:

So, feeling fully inspired, I got the rest of my supplies
 These are the spray paints I chose.  The blue for accents and the lamps.  The Silver for my side tables and dresser.  and the black is Oil Rubbed Bronze for the handles of the furniture.  
I love the way oil rubbed bronze looks.  Whenever we have our own house I'm going to have all my doorknobs and fixtures in it.  

Stay Tuned for More!
