A Friday Full of Beds

I must be tired, because the only major things I worked on this week were beds!


See that junky full size headboard and foot board! It is at least three different colors and had great potential!




I love the two-tone look. It brings out all of the scalloped edges and features! Macy did the painting with a homemade mixture of chalk paint and I finished it with the distressing. It looks awesome!


I had two of these headboards. They were overwhelmingly boring. So boring, I lacked inspiration...for a long time. I finally bit the bullet and tackled both of these this week. My inspiration was drawn from a mom who stopped by the store this week. She looked at me and said, "you have girls, don't you?" Errr...yeah...my stuff tends to trend on the more girly side. I decided to make these more gender neutral, rather than girlifying them (which I would have done with cute resin rose pieces from etsy and shabby chic'd in a traditional white or pink).

The first...


Pretty basic, but much nicer in a very boyish (or girly with the right decor) shade of green.

And, the second...


A one-of-a-kind chalkboard bed. Bright blue frames the center of the headboard, which is painted with chalkboard paint for those more artistic ones! What a great way to wake up in the morning..with a fun memo from mom, dad, the tooth fairy, Santa Claus...anyone really!

Check the for sale page for other new pieces and pricing! Thanks for stopping by.
