We have been thinking about getting Coco a new bedroom suite. Something more girly than what she has. Yesterday I was looking through Craigslist and found this set.

As a little girl I always wanted a french provincial set just like this one. The price was a great deal for all 4 pieces so I emailed the seller to see if it was still available.

A few hours later I checked my email. The seller responded. This is what she said " Hi Pam, it's cousin Nancy. We would love for you and (Coco) to have the set. Call me.
I got Scott and Coco to read the email and we cracked up. It really is a small world. That was so funny to me. We talked to her and we will go pick up the set tonight or tomorrow.
We are very excited to get it. It will be some work to paint it all but it will be beautiful in a creamy white with new hardware.
I will be sure to post pics of our progress.

I had a set similar to this one when I was 15. It was still in such good shape. I couldn't give it away. I had it painted creamy white. My kids couldn't use it for their girls. I finally asked a friend of mine if she wanted it for her girls. She was so excited esp. when she saw the condition. Glad you got this and from family.

Hi, I just hit the "next blog" button from my own to see where it might take me. I scrolled down and spotted the bedroom set and read that you are considering repainting it. Have you ever checked out Design Sponge? They have tons of great ideas and loads of great information. Check out this dresser repaint that ads a lot of class style to a piece similar to yours. Scroll through the "Before + After" pages to find more inspiration, like this.
