Painting a bedroom set

My neighbor and friend has been talking about painting her bedroom set for the last 3 years.  It is a pine and she just hates the orange tones.

The set includes this armoire, a large (I mean L.A.R.G.E) dresser, and 2 night stands.  She also had me paint a mirror for the wall and a free standing mirror.
I removed all the hardware and sanded the finish a little.
I needed to use a primer with this piece since I was pretty sure that orange would leak through.
After the priming, I painted it then lightly distressed it and protected it with some wax for the tops and some polywhey for the body.
Here is the dresser all set up in her room.  Doesn't it look like something out of a pottery barn magazine?
