A QUICK BED TRANSFORMATION || and my baby turns 3

Good morning friends!!

I thought I would show you a quick furniture 'BEFORE + AFTER'.  And a testament to how easy Chalk Paint® is to work with!!


A friend was re-decorating her guest bedroom and asked if we wanted the Queen bed.  Of course I said yes!


I loved the lines of it.  We wanted a Queen bed for the guest bedroom….it was just made to be :-)


I painted it GRAPHITE.  I didn't sand or prime.  Just wiped it down with a clean cloth and started to paint.  It took two coats to get a really nice finish. I applied 1 coat of CLEAR WAX and it was ready to be set up in the guest bedroom the same day I painted.  Talk about instant gratification!


The guest room isn't finished/decorated, but I wanted to show you how the bed turned out.


I am addicted to this paint.  It makes painting so enjoyable and rewarding!


Now I need to find a table and lamp.  I am thinking a red table could look really darling in this room…..don't you think?!?


And, I thought I had some great pictures of my birthday girl.  Turns out, just a lot of videos and phone pictures.  This is a photo of when she crawled out of bed….her room was full of balloons when she woke up.  I got that idea from a friend {fill the bedroom with balloons while they sleep} and she was so excited when she woke up!

We spoiled her with lots of sugar, a new bike, and a trip to see her first movie at the theater.  Did anybody else cry like a baby at the FROZEN movie?  Oh I was a mess!  I think I can thank motherhood for that!

OK, off to {hopefully} finish up my chores at the vacation rental for the week!!
