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


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!

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!
