Themed Children's Furniture

When I had my business making children's hand painted furniture, I loved the creativity involved. Half the fun was trying out various color combinations and themes. I equally loved painting for girls and boys.

This was a little girl's vanity set I painted. I took the picture without the mirror in place.
I painted several headboard's for beds. Here is a colorful butterfly headboard.

Here was a patriotic headboard I created.

I loved painting this sweet little insect chest.

Here's a similar version done more to a boy's liking with old fashioned airplanes.














Have you painted any themed furniture pieces for your kid's room? I'd love to hear about them!

  13. Love the planes on the chest of drawers. Did you totally hand paint them or use stencils or something? Would love to be able to do something in my son's room since he loves planes. Thanks
