Revisiting childhood

One more huge painting project on my list was recently deposited into one of our spare rooms.  The bedroom furniture I got when I was 9 years old:

This furniture has remained at my parent's house since I moved out, but it was finally time to get that spare room decorated the way my mom wanted it.  I have many fond memories of this set, so I was happy to become the owner again.  The set also includes a nightstand and headboard/footboard that I haven't gotten yet.  I am definitely not digging the cherry look from 1990, so my plan is to prime and paint these three pieces out in a creamy white and use it in this room as an office set with extra storage.    

It is a mix of laminate and wood (which is why I'm all about painting it), so we'll see if the BIN primer is as amazing as I hope it is!

I do have the desk area drawer somewhere in the house, whoops on taking the photo without that!  The hutch is removable and I don't believe I will use it since it makes the set look 'younger' than I'd like.  I also will be using the mirror that attaches to the dresser somewhere else.  I think with some new hardware this set will look fresh and clean, and maybe someday I will give it to my daughter.  Wish me luck on this project!
