My goal was to have a welcoming guest room on the third floor of my home since the children had left the nest. My goal was pretty big and my budget was pretty small so I had to get creative.
The foot board on the left has been sanded and the headboard on the right has been sanded and sprayed with one coat of paint. I ended up using three coats and used 2 cans of paint. Several light coats is better than one heavy coat.
My spraypainting area was quickly set up using a drop cloth over my compost tumbler in the back yard near my potting bench. Looks like I have some tidying up to do!
Here's the third floor of our home, waiting for it's new identity.
Here's Hubs trying to fit a full size mattress and box spring up a very narrow and tight stairway. Now that I feel so much better, he's having a hard time keeping up with all of my projects. I may or may not have heard him mumbling under his breath.
I was able to get the Serta mattress and box spring set at a deep discount because they did not match exactly and the box spring had a smudge on one corner. I figured it would always be covered, so it wouldn't matter. Saving several hundred dollars on a slightly imperfect, not to be seen by the naked eye mattress set? Yes, please.
Once all of the pieces were put together we had a nice bed for our guests.
