I’m so excited to share my daughter’s room re-do with you guys, but it’s not quite ready yet. So I thought I would at least let you get a peek at the bed I found her.
Here’s a negotiation hint for you – don’t exclaim “Oh my gosh this is perfect I have been looking for one of these everywhere!” and then ask them to knock $50 off the price… Ok, so I’m not good at playing hard to get, this is why the Mr. will never take me car shopping :) but at $150 I still thought it was an ok deal considering the cheapest one I saw on Craiglist was $350.
I loved the chippy white finish on it so much, I really hesitated to paint it, but I promised my girly girl she could have a pink bed.
So I hit it with some spray paint…and I would like to publicly apologize to the Mr. for the state of his garage floor – it now has a lovely cotton candy vibe in there, which I guess is better than the CSI thing it had going for it before when I was using red spray paint??
I’m loving the pink, it is so much more fun this way! Sorry about the tight shot – I didn’t want to give too much of the room away yet, but you will notice in the back that the pink walls are gone!!
Can I just pause a moment to explain what a “special” experience hanging wallpaper with my favorite 18 month old mountain goat boy was? Let’s just say he ended up in the bathtub fully clothed, soaking wet and happy as a clam. :)
UPDATE – You can see the finished room here!
