Bedroom Remodel, Step 1...

We are finished with the first step of the bedroom remodel. This spring, my mom asked if I wanted a bed frame that used to be my grandparents. Okay, so maybe she asked after I hinted, begged, for the bed frame. I can remember being a little kid and thinking it was SO pretty. And I want to have the kind of lasting love that both of my sets of grandparents had, so why not take their old bed!
This is what is started out looking like:

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!!
Here's the after:

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! :)
Next on the list is painting the room. You can see in some of the pictures we are trying to make a final decision on color.
After that, there's a few more projects left for some wall hangings and other decorations. Stay tuned!
