There’s just the two of us, so one would think one bed would suffice. However, there are also two guest rooms that need to be outfitted with beds. I elected to place in one of the guest bedrooms two twin beds and the other room a queen size bed.
On Craigslist (Luv that place!) I found two headboards for $25.00 that looked like this:
The headboards were in great condition, but I wasn’t feeling the wood. Painted the headboards and now they look all nice and crisp:
I finished this project in time for Easter. The two sets of bedding I had picked up at the JC Penney Outlet awhile back. Since I have an addiction for bed linens I know I’ll probably change the linens as often (at least) that the seasons change.
Ah-ha, you only see one bed in the above image. The headboard has been painted, I have the linens, but have yet to purchase another mattress set.
The verbage above the bed I put up for Mr. Wonderful’s birthday. I still want to add some sort of a scroll around it. The French translation roughly is “I love you today more than yesterday but not as much as tomorrow.” The man speaks French and I love hearing him repeat the phrase. (OK, so really in some ways it was more a gift for me.)
In the attic I had a lonely twin bed frame. Certainly no longer had a use for it since I scored on the CL headboards. What to do, what to do?!?! I came across an idea on one of the blogs (hate that I can’t credit the blog because I can’t recall which blog!) for this bed to bench idea. Here it is “in progress.” :
Adore the idea! Still have no idea where in the house it’ll land, nor what the final paint color will be….but loving it!
Recall at the begining I said the other guest bedroom would have a queen bed? Well, I’m still looking for a headboard or headboard/footboard that speaks to me. So, WE NEED MORE BEDS!
Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
