Altering Furniture: An Undersized Urbanite Update

I started on the master bedroom furniture in the last couple weeks.  I've been really busy, as per usual, but stopped to add some paint here and there.  My inspiration for this room is very monochromatic neutral.  Black, white and grey with just a pop of yellow and turquoise.

I have a bedroom set-inherited from somewhere or another....It's a nice enough set but it was all in maple...

Paint to the rescue!!!
Each piece of furniture got 3 coats of black paint (Americana) white detailing in Snow White (minus the bed) and then a good coat of Delta Ceramcoat Satin Varnish.

 I love the clean modern look now!  And it will look so great with the wallpaper and linens I have picked out.  :)  That chair in the corner will not be staying.  I plan to make another arm chair for that corner.
 So sleek, so elegant!

 This room will be getting grey walls and a hard wood floor.  Possibly it's own rug.  I keep trying to remember that I am going to sell this house.... but I am loving the way things are turning out.  :D
