A friend recently picked this bed frame up and asked me to paint it cream with some of the original gold color peaking thru.
I gave it the “super-professional” treatment of painting it in the front yard up against a tree. Hey…. a painters gotta do what a painters got to do!
It was nearly impossible to stand the frame up for a good “after” shot. I tried. Neither the lighting angle nor Ava were cooperating
Me: “Ava smile”.
Me: “Ava smile!”
I made Ava and the neighbor boy hold the frame up for me so that I could get some closeup shots.
I thought it turned out so pretty.
I made not one…. but TWO really poor, horribly pathetic videos of how I distressed the frame. If you aren’t‘ afraid of cranky faux finishers, me whacking my 8 year old (not really) or toddlers peeing in the front yard……let me know and I will publish it. Majority rules.
I think I would watch that video!!! haha. That should be fun.
Great bed, I missed buying an old bed frame like that one recently. Now I’m on the look out for another one.
That looks so cute.

Beautiful as always! Makes me wish I still had the old brass bed I had as a teenager!! What I could do with it now!
Everything you touch is beautiful…
Is this the piece you were telling me about? I really think your idea of painting my lamps white and distressing so the gold comes through will look so awesome…. just like your bed! You have to post the video!!! Good job once again 🙂

I want to do the same thing, I just need to find a brass bed or wrought iron on Craigslist that is in my (tiny) budget.
