Redoing Vintage Bedroom Furniture - Before

Here is the second furniture refinishing project I am working on. Once again, I enlisted help from my father-in-law, Rudy, to help with this project. My mother-in-law, Jeanie, has had this bedroom set since she was a girl and we are redoing it for Ava's big girl room.

Eventually it will be white, but here are the before photos. We had to strip off the varnish, sand them, prime them and then we will paint them.

Headboard & Footboard:


Top of vanity (that holds mirror):

I love the way this vintage furniture looks...fairly simple yet will be perfect for a little girl's room. Still trying to decide if I am going to use the vintage hardware or not. Leaning towards yes because I love the little doorknocker style and the floral design on the knobs. Just wondering if I should paint them hot pink to be a little girly/funky or if I should just do them a bronze or black or something more neutral.
