Love Orange and Stripes? You’ve Got to See this Rescue!

“I don’t seem to be able to turn down decent free furniture even when I DO NOT need it,” laughs Joan of Nicer Than New.  “A few months ago, I was given a child’s desk and dresser. I offered them to my niece and I painted them up for my 7-year-old GREAT nephew.”

This particular 7 year old happens to love the color orange.  Rather than overpower his room with big pieces of orange furniture, Joan decided to use orange stripes on a gray background, instead.  Some of the drawer pulls were keepers, which she updated with a few coats of satin nickel spray paint.  Joan replaced the more ornate pulls with a simpler style that suited the new look of these pieces.  ” I love the race-car look the pieces ended up with, thanks to those orange stripes,” Joan points out.  Perfect for a little boy’s room!
