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.

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!
