Project #1

As promised, I'm going to keep myself from wallowing about our home situation by doing some projects.  Today, I'm going to show you the bed I found at the side of the road for Audrey's room.

But first, how could I have a bad day when my favourite marble rye toast came out like this?

{at least my toast loves me!}

Here's the headboard of the bed:

 There are also two thick, carved rails that go on the sides and a footboard.  It's in pretty good shape, despite it's terrible orangey stain.  

This is really the only problem with it:

See the little curved piece of trim that's missing?  Luckily I know a guy who can probably fix this little section.  I'm just waiting for him to do it.  I'm hoping he gets to it soon.

In the meantime, I'll do a sanding and priming job on the rest of the bed.  Surprisingly (not at all) Audrey has chosen turquoise as the paint colour.  I'm off to pick up some more fabric to use as my jumping off point.

{a reminder of the direction we're going with her room}


I'm so excited to get started on this project!

  1. That bed is such an incredible find! I love it! Halle isn't quite ready for a big girl bed yet... but I've been keeping my eyes out for some good options. Haven't found anything as nice as that! :)

  2. I can't wait to see the finished project - great inspiration pictures!
