Shabby chic bed

Yesterday I shared this horrible nasty bed I purchased at Goodwill.



I painted it a pistachio green and distressed it. For some reason I feel that photos never show the true colors and awesomeness of a bed when you are showing it without a mattress and bedding....But oh well....





My Etsy seller GIVEAWAY ends Sunday night, so be sure to enter soon....


Have a great weekend everyone!

  5. So pretty! When you distress your newly painted items, do you mainly use sandpaper?

  12. Hi Lisa!

    I never get tired of seeing what a coat or two of paint can do. You saved that bed. Great color! I know what you mean about the color not showing true in photos. Frustrating with our type of blogs. This will be darling in a cottage bedroom!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  13. I understand what your saying. Not having the mattress and the bedding is like having shoes without shoe laces. How can you judge how good a shoe looks without shoe laces?
