My sweet niece Jade got her Mum, my little sister Jacqui (Jax for short) airplane tickets to come visit in October. I can not wait, it has been a long long time since Jax has been here, I mean she has never been to this house and we have been here since 97 I think.
So today I thought I would get the bed painted, I didn't think I would totally get it done, but I did.
Remember I got a screaming deal on this bed a while ago. The paint was a greenish/whitish look and painted really rough. I wanted it shabby but not this much and with the bedding it needed to be more white. So yesterday I picked up an off white and today I painted it.
I am not the best painter and probably spraying it would have been better, but oh well and oops I should have sanded down some of the original painters drips, but I didn't…here it is after I painted it…see the drips? They stick out like a sore thumb at me now…speaking of which I cut my thumb this morning slicing a tomato…ouch! I don't want to try to fix them cause I think I will make more of a mess.
…and then I used my sanding block that is for the coordinations paper and I sanded it here and there.
I love the details it has on it.
Here it is…I guess with all the pillows you can hardly see the headboard let alone the drips. I love it and can't wait till Jacqui comes and sleeps in it.
Well this old gal is off to bed, my plain old one we have had forever…might need to look for one for us eh?
Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.

Well I hope it's comfy!!!!!! It looks comfy!!!! I can't wait to come and see you!!!! I was only at your place in Mesa and I can't even remember when that was…..before I had kids I think. You might never get me to leave once I get there!!!!
How wonderful! I hope Jax can stay with you for a long time. She certainly has a beautiful bed to sleep in!

what a pretty bed that is and don't you find that a labor of love always goes faster than you anticipate…
