Bed time!

This inviting little bed started out looking rather cold and boring... 


... amazing what a little paint, fabric, vintage lace and a few hours work can do! 


What's hiding, neglected, in your stash that you could transform into something you'll love?

Not only do I like the new color of the painted wood, but I also like the appliquéd designs on the head and footboard. They take this bed from shabby to Chic!
Well done!!! :D

It looks Amazing, Norma! For some reason I am always afraid to paint over a "finished" piece of furniture! I think I need to get some "plain and ordinary" pieces and just practice! Showing the "before" picture is a great help!

Truly amazing!!!

Claudia said...

GORGEOUS!

As the lucky recipient of one of your beautiful beds, I can speak to the detail and beauty of your creations.

This is fantabulous!

Much nicer Norma. Definitely time well spent rooting around in your "bits" box. It's often surprising the stuff we have that we forget about and you've certainly put yours to good use.

Spectacular transformation Norma!
There's always great satisfaction when you can turn an ugly duckling into a swan!

Great makeover Norma, it looks so beautiful now.

I love this transformation. Just shows what a difference a few changes make and how things can look completely different depending on the vision of the creator. Lovely.

What a great job you have done on that boring Brown bed. Now it´s inviting and soothing. I always love those before/after pics :-)
