My new "OLD" bed.

I thought I would show y'all my new "OLD" bed that I finally got around to finishing. I actually finished it a few months ago but I wanted to wait until I had my new quilt and shams before putting it on here. I was looking back through some older posts and saw the one where I had posted my little grandson Jason and my son, Garrett sitting in front of my bed and it dawned on me that I had never done a post on it. This is what it looked like whenever I first bought it. I loved the color that it was however it wouldn't go with my bedroom wall color which is a green too.

First, I primed it with two coats of primer. This was after the first coat. I love all of the detail. Then I painted it with my favorite color...Heirloom Lace. A creamy white. I might add some rose decals in the center later on.

Look how pretty it turned out. So pretty and so dainty. I have a small bedroom and my king size bed was taking up almost my whole room. When I saw this bed, I knew it would be perfect.

I now have room on each side for my end tables that I recently painted.

My room feels so much bigger now. I also love my new quilt and shams. I waited until they went 'clearance' before I bought them. That always helps. lol I love quilts....they bring back happy memories for me. I bought the scalloped valances at a thrift store a couple of years ago and they just happened to match.

Even the foot board is detailed and so pretty. I love my little bed.

I love my little bed and my little bedroom. This is my space where I can relax from the outside world. I love to just sit here and relax and visit my 'bloggy' friends. I picked this little wicker bed tray up at a thrift store years ago. Perfect for my laptop.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you my little treasure. I'll have more pictures soon of my dresser and chest of drawers that I am working on.
I'm linking to "Show and Tell Friday" with My Romantic Home and to Miss Mustard Seed for "Furniture Friday" and also to The House in the Roses for "Show off your cottage Monday. Please go by their blogs and visit the other participants. So many beautiful things to see.
