    This piece is fantastic! Love it! Do you use a spray gun when painting your furniture? If so what brand is it? Thanks!

  33. I love the way that bright colors like this work when I'm decorating a master bedroom. A lot of times the bedroom remains bland while more time is spent on other areas of the home. I think that a splash of color can do a lot for a room.
