A Bed to Match the Dresser

This is the beautiful full bed that will be for my youngest client, to coordinate with her dresser that I also painted… Yes, this is Victorian and the dresser is French Provincial but paint is going to make everything jive together perfectly I promise!

My friend Gail and I picked this up off of Craig’s List a couple of month’s back… great price and in very good condition. Gail knew she wanted me to paint it, but was leaving the color choice up to her daughter… we both agreed that was wise move Laughing out loud

BEFORE

I painted it the same mix as the dresser, equal parts Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Greek Blue, Pure White and CeCe Caldwell’s Spring Green. I painted the wood medallions and grooves in Pure White… so pretty… a little tedious both worth the extra time!

Green painted custom Victorian bed

I distressed it, sealed it with Annie Sloan clear wax, buffed it with 0000 steel wool and then polished it with a soft cloth… it is super smooth!

I haven’t done ANY Easter decorating, but I have this great bunny iron card holder that I just love… it’s always out, so I didn’t have to do much, just take the picture Winking smile I did pick up some jelly beans for the Easter baskets today, I hope they make it to Easter…

I can’t wait to see the room all setup and decorated, I think it will be just gorgeous!

Hope you enjoyed the bed makeover! Sorry it wasn’t setup, but I didn’t have the rails!

I wish Spring would hurry up and get here already, I need some 60+ degree days!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
