Hi everyone, I said I would post this today but was called away to see my sick sis. I quickly made my bed and tried to take some pics while I had the light.
Better late than never!
Here is my headboard we were so blessed to get as an old door from our church a few weeks back.
This door was original to our Church building which was built in 1899.
Here is the before. She had a few chips but not enough to make her chippy. I wasn't sure what to do with her and got a lot of suggestions and lovely comments from you all. I thought about removing the old paint but didn't want to get into the whole lead thing. Even after a cleaning she still seemed a little "dirty" looking to me. I knew I had to finish her off in a way that I would feel comfortable spending all my nights with her!
Hubby and I put up some molding on the top to give it a finished look and provide a little shelf. I gave her a couple coats of Ben Moore's "cloud white" which also match the night tables
. I wanted to keep the paint color a little uniform to create a sense of space as the room is not that wide on this end.
As soon as I put my first coat of paint on her I knew I had made the right decision for me.
I love it!
Yes, Jack managed to get into another pic! I think he goes so well with the bed!
I added baskets under the table for extra storage space. I placed a couple of lovely crocheted pillow cases I got from GW in there for the pic but I'll be using the baskets for
magazines and books.
You get to see a pic of Jack and Tara. Seeing Tara in a pic is a rare sight as she is quite camera shy so I thought I would provide you all with the thrill of seeing her. Lol.
