My new 'old' bed

This is the bed that I bought a couple of weeks ago at the used furniture store. They had just put it out when I got there. When I saw it, I knew it was meant for me! I had to leave it there because I didn't have a truck to haul it. This is the same store where they save things for me with 'roses' on it.

I love all of the details on it. I can't wait to start priming and painting it. I kind -of like the color that it is already is but I'm going with a blue and yellow color scheme in my guest bedroom. I think I will paint it 'Cottage White".

It even has pretty little details on the foot board. It is a 'full' size bed. I'm so happy with it. I know that I could not have bought a new bed that would have made me happier. I love 'old' pieces so much better.

I haven't posted too much this month, I know. There has just been so much going on and I have been in a lot of pain with the Fibro. It just aggravates me so much! There is so much that want to get done around my cottage but when I hurt, I just shut down. Some days I can barely make it to work. When I get to work, I try to put on a front that the pain is not there because I don't want them to know. I don't think that most people there would understand anyway and I don't want to be labeled as the 'complainer'. I just smile and just try to get through the day. It is just so hard sometimes. Thank you everyone that has left sweet comments to me about this and understanding. This song playing is one of my favorites. The little girl singing was around 5 years old when she recorded this. Her voice is beautiful to me.

It is a pretty bed. The colors you showed me will be perfect. It will look and feel so peaceful. I will cut you slats after you paint the bed and we go to put it together. He didn't have any slats yesterday when I picked up the bed. I did ask him.....I figured it couldn't hurt...he might just have some. HA!
I hope you do get to feeling better. I know this week has been bad.
Hugs,
Stevie

First of all my friend, prayers have gone up all week long for those of us hurting. I firmly believe it is the unpredictablility of the weather. Hot then cold and back to hot again. Don't do too much and try to let your body heal up some. I'm in the same way as you this week. Been flaring actually for two weeks now.

YOUR BED IS GORGEOUS!!!! Love it. Be sure to take pics when done and share. I can't wait to see it.

Hugs sweetie and feel better soon.

That bed is absolutely gorgeous! I love it the way it is! What a find!

I feel so bad for fibromyalgia patients - it seems the syndrome is so prevalent - it makes one wonder what is causing it. You have such a wonderful attitude though - I don't know how you do it! Have a great day.
