Distressed French Blue Twin Bed

I couldn't believe I contacted the person
selling this bed and they were literally across the busy
highway next to our house - the equivalent of two doors down.
Hard to beat that! ;-)

It's actually a very old bed that needed a lot of repair.
It's not perfect, but I think it turned out quite pretty.
It's these kind of pieces that make my girls go crazy!
Lol - they're like me just wanting to keep every piece. ;-)






I finished this piece in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
Duck Egg Blue/Old White mix and
sealed it with Polycrylic.





It needed to be glued, clamped, decals were falling off, oiy!
It also did not come with siderails so I ordered up some
new hardware (which fits PERFECT~yay!) and
made up some painted wood siderails to match.
It also has one brand new wheel since one was missing.




I have never seen another bed like this, and
I am SO thrilled with all of the beautiful
details on the headboard and footboard!





LOOK at the LEGS on this beauty!!!




The inside of the footboard is refinished as well.






And the BEFORE:




AFTER:


Fit for a pretty little princess I believe! :-)


$275 cash

On a side note...some of you have inquired about "my" music.
Hmmm??? You all know I have a degree in Music Ministry, right?
Well...now you do! Haha!
I don't write many songs or have an album or anything,
but I'd be willing to record a little something
to share with you. I do it every week anyway! ;-)
Am I setting myself up for embarrassment and scrutiny?
Do you really want me to do that???

Love ya guys!


Have a FANTASTIC weekend!!!

The bed frame looks kind of "dreamy" - perfect for a French bedroom! Great job!! And by the way, I'd love it if you would play and sing something for us. My teenaged daughter just learned to play the guitar so she can help with praise and worship at church. You go girl! Suzanne
