It as been warm here for the last two weeks. At least warm for here - in the 50's last week. This time last year we had record snow fall. My wishing for spring may be working.
Since it has been so nice, things have been incredibly busy at the shop. It has also given us a chance to do some painting.
Last week we found the sweetest, antique full size bed. It was in beautiful condition except for the finish. It is the kind with all of the romantic embellishments and the curved footboard. I love the look of these beds. They are so feminine.
The person that gave it up had had it for about 50 years and she bought it from an antique shop.
We tried to salvage the original finish but it just wasn't salavable...sooo.... out came the primer and the creamy cottage white paint. She now is ready for a new home.
This bed is beautiful. I would put it in my guest room if I could get it up the stairs. I have one of those great old homes that have the cute little rooms upstairs. Unfortunently, you have to scale a very curvy set of stair to get there.
Here are some pictures of this "Sleeping Beauty". I could stay in this bed all day.
This is a close up of the graceful headboard.
Lovin' that curvy footboard.
I am working on finishing up on a curvy dresser shown in a previous post that will
match this bed perfectly. I love when a plan comes together.
I also am working on lots of girlie, pink goodies to go along with this Sleeping Beauty.
