Add a Touch of Whimsy - Hand Painted Furniture & Accessories for Kids' Rooms January 23 2010

Hand painted, personalized furniture and décorative accessories are great ways to add whimsy and personality to your kid’s room.  We happened upon Bret's Wishes who we think has the right mix of playfulness and style to help bring that touch of fun you may be seeking.  Based in Farmington Hills, MI, Bret's Wishes specializes in hand painted children’s furniture and accessories and has been in business for more than 20 years.  All their items are hand-painted using child-safe acrylic paints and top coated for greater protection. A few of our favorites are this gorgeous white girl's jewelry box with light pink and white flowers and green detailing.  What a perfect little accent for a toddler girl's room with floral décor or a nature themed room.  Eye-catching it is! We think this personalized wooden rocking horse would look darling in the corner of a blue baby boy’s room. Use it to add an element of traditionalism to your modern nursery.  Decorated with blue and yellow stars and moons, this wooden rocking horse will be sure to help your little boy drift off to dreamland. And, we like the color combination of this heart toy box with fun, modern turquoise mixed with traditionally “girl” purple and pink heart, polka dot décor. We appreciate the detail woven into the design, particularly how they use paint to add texture to the furniture.  The texture adds extra visual appeal and is tastefully done in soft colors. Bret’s Wishes also does hand painted step stools, wall letters, bookends, coat racks, wall decor, growth charts, rocking chairs, and more.
