Trash to Treasure Furniture Re-Fab!

So I have been working on my daughter's "little girl" bedroom furniture for sometime now. I bought her furniture late last year and thought I had taken before pictures of everything...apparently not! The only before picture I could find was of the hutch, but just know the dresser looked the same way.
I am going for a "shabby princess" look for her room so I sanded, painted, distressed, and sealed everything off with a coat of poly.

You can see the before and after of the hardware above. The top is what it looks like now, the bottom is what it did look like. I used a technique I found on Centsational Girl to re-finish them (look towards the middle of her post to see how to do it).

As for the bed, no before pictures, but it was a deep dark brown. I really like the dark brown showing through where I distressed the bed. I think I may go back and stain the distressed marks on the hutch a dark brown as well.

So that's as far as I've gotten. We are going to be moving in a few months so I will do her bedroom reveal then.
