and went over it with homemade chalk paint recipe from No Minimalist Here using my wall paint (if you missed that post just click the Bedroom Makeover link at the beginning of this post) and then did a little distressing and waxed. I used Johnson Wax to finish it; smelled so bad, pew!!! Can't use that one again unless I can leave it outside all day. Here is the before:

Apparently, this queen set is a little larger than the usual size. So for now, my new set is on the floor until I find some rails that will fit. Will definitely be checking the thrift stores this week.
~Frugal Treasures Tuesday~
The link with the most clicks goes to Vicky at Decor & Harmony ! She shows how you can use what you got to get what you want! Look at her knock off creations using chalk paint! Great job, Vicki!
Sherry at Decorating With Cents brightened up her kitchen with these cute lamps!
What a fun way to set a spring table. Maria Elena @ Our Home Away From Home created such a cute, fresh, and yummy look.
Sarah at Alderberry Hill was so imaginative in making this cute little shamrock tree!

Hi Barbe...So happy for the feature, thanks so much, I appreciated it!ReplyDelete
I don't see the link up though for this week.
Your welcome, Sarah! Thanks so much for letting me know about the link; don't know why it didn't show but its up now! : )ReplyDelete
Your bed looks FABULOUS!!! You did an amazing job. That's too bad about the mattress. It totally sounds like something that would happen to me!! Hope you find some new rails soon so you can fully enjoy that bed.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jenn and thank you for leaving a comment. I love when readers leave a comment so I can find their blogs also. Hope you'll come back soon and please link to my party! : )ReplyDelete
That's a nice transformation.ReplyDelete
Hi Janette and thank you. So happy you stopped by.Delete
Hello and thanks so much for the invite to participate in your link party! And good luck with those bedrails. Hope it works out for you!ReplyDelete
Hi and thanks so much for stopping by! I'm thinking I might have to make some wood ones and paint to match. Think it will be the easiest and most cost effective solution.Delete
Thanks so much for inviting me to party. Love your headboard. Hope the rest falls into place for you!ReplyDelete
Hi Jennifer. Hopefully it won't take too long. : )Delete
Great Job!...I love the colour!ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by! I love the pieces in your shop, awesome! : )Delete
Barbe thanks for featuring my lamps, I was really shocked! I love the colors you used on your bed, you did a beautiful job.ReplyDelete
Your quite welcome, Sherry! You did a great job in your choice of lamps. Thanks, I love the color also. I started to paint it white but after using the blue on a tray, realized how much I liked it with my wall color. : )Delete
You sure are creative in the ways you find to paint! :) We do what we have to in order to create, don't we?
Your room is going to be so nice. You've done a great job on your bed.
Strange about the rails, 3 inches is a lot. That surprised me.
have a great day Barbe!
Hi Gail, and thanks for stopping by. I think part of the problem was these rails didn't go with the frame. I had picked them up at the thrift store and they fit my full size mattress fine. But that 2 1/2 inch difference in length needed for the queen made a big difference. Thanks so much for your kind words! I'm so close to getting my bedroom makeover completed but the sewing machine keeps becoming an issue! : (ReplyDelete
Beautiful bed! Thanks for sharing at A Couple of Craft Addicts!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Hope to link up again! : )Delete
