Last week I mentioned that I had changed my mind about making the second little room into a dressing room - and had decided instead to go with a second guest room. I showed you some options for bed frames I had found online - none of which I was able to get for one reason or another.................but I did find this one.
It's nothing at all of what I had imagined - but it'll do - and I DO happen to like the curves and scroll work which will tie in ( kind of, sort of, maybe ? ) with this small dresser I'll be using as a night table
The scrolls were transferred on using a transfer from the The Graphics Fairy and later darkened with a sharpie.....................
It served as my end table in our last place and I was thinking of freshening it up and selling it - now it'll be staying with me a little longer since it's the perfect size for a lamp and a few books.
This is how it looked before
You can see the tutorial for the transfer HERE
Meanwhile I haven't stopped painting in that room for 3 days - and it's only going white
( with one deep grey accent wall which you can't see in this photo )
The first 2 coats barely covered - I'm on the 3rd and it's looking a little cleaner now
And as much as I love the little windows I can't tell you what a pain they are to paint !!!
( much scraping involved - I'll just say that - there's paint on the glass panes that I swear to you has to be 50 years old )
This room's the brighter of the 2 guest rooms because it has a small sash window on the other side of as well.................( where the deep grey will go ) and the bed will be placed in a sort of nook on that side ( made to measure almost )
And that's what I've been working on non stop now.....................before moving on to the offce ( and final upstairs room )
I'm determined that it'll be finished before we hit our first year " anniversary " in this place.
The first guest room was done with particular little princesses in mind
You can see it HERE - but this one's going to be all grown up - not fluffy at all
All white - with black accents ( much like my room now that I think of it )
Before and after my room is HERE
Okay - gotta run before the paint dries on the roller ( AND I change my mind about the whole thing again )
