Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I've seen this kind of bed on other blogs and have always wanted to get one.
I know the picture kinda sucks....but bare with me please.
I was just glancing through our local kijiji when I came across it. It came with everything. Two dressers, a mirror and this bed.
The price was a bit more than I normally pay for something, but I just had to have that bed!
After talking to the owner for a bit we came to a price we could both live with. For some reason she thought the bed was going to be the hardest part to sell! She did have offers for the dressers but nothing for the bed, and I think she picked me because I wanted everything :)
This is the headboard that came with it.
Now as pretty as this is..I wasn't thrilled with it. I have another project in mind for this one.
BUT I just happened to have another head board that fit perfectly with this set that I thought would suit the time period perfectly. I already knew this wasn't the original headboard so I felt no guilt in switching it out.
This was after the first coat of primer. Sorry about that...but you know when you get excited about a project you just dive right in....right? Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this.
I posted a pic of the set on my facebook page as soon as I got home. I had several inquiries pretty much right away, and sold it before I even started to redo it. This is great because the person who bought it was able to share her ideas on what she wanted for colour etc.
So this is how it looks now. Ready for her new owner to come and get her tomorrow :)
Isn't it sweeeeet?
I just love the hint of age on this set now.
It's just sooooo perfect.
If only this bed had been a king size..I would have so kept it for myself.
But you know how it goes...the search will continue till I find my own perfect set. Either that or I manage to talk my husband into letting me paint what we have ;)
