Okay, so not exactly as beautiful as I thought it was when I was a kid. But definitely had potential! I'm not a fan of much gold or brass, but I loved the lines of it. So, I do what I do best - SPRAY PAINT!!!
I'm starting to wonder if there is a such thing as spray painters anonymous, because I could possibly be addicted. Michelle, I promise I won't spray your kids if they come over to play!!
After a month of crazy busyness, I finally finished the frame and actually got it put together.
Here's a before of the room:Well, it's kind of a during shot. It was 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday morning, so I was still half asleep and didn't realize I needed to take pictures until after we had taken the matresses off. The one thing I want to say about this bed is IT WAS LARGE! Emily even had a hard time climbing up on it. And of course, the new bed is small compared to it. But I LOVE IT!!
Man alive, I really need to get the iron out on those shams. But then again it was 6:30 in the morning, so there was no ironing happening at that time in the morning! :)
