Sweet Dreams complete!

I'm just so excited this morning to share with you a completed bed. 

Remember this one? 
I picked it up last week, you can read that story HERE (Sweet Dreams X10)

I had it done, but waited till this morning to take pictures. 
Here she is! 

The new owners have escaped Canada for a warm Mexican they haven't even seen the pictures yet. But I couldn't wait, I had to share with all of you. (shhhh don't tell on me) 
 I used a combination of "provence" and "paris grey"..a glaze and then slight distressing...and I mean very sight.

 Look at that foot board.

 I showed my husband and told him I could die happy if I could sleep in this bed.

 I taped off this section of one of the side rails. This bed was signed by the some point before 1871. So I kept that for the new owner.
Drool worth bed...
Picking up my chin and moving on. 
I will cry when this one leaves. 
I really hope my clients daughter has many sweet dreams sleeping on this dreamy bed. :)
