A few months ago my sweet seester Terri sent me photos of a house that she wanted to buy. It was a craftsman bungalow that was so cute! I immediately fell in love with it! We got busy buying, painting and repurposing furniture for her new home. Over the next few months I will be sharing her new home with you. Today we are starting in the Master bedroom. I am so excited to share Terri’s black bed with you.
Here’s the first photo she sent to me. I could just see sitting on a porch swing in the summer time on that front porch!
Here’s what it looks like today. Not really any changes just a bigger picture. It has so much potential!
I bought this BIG black bed a few years ago thinking I would put it in my bedroom, but the Hubs wasn’t sold on it. So it sat in storage until now. When I say it is big, I mean it is a Queen size ( what else would it be?) bed that measures 6 foot tall! As you can see here, I am standing on a tall barstool to paint it!
I used Junk Gypsy’s black paint, did a little distressing and a wax topcoat to finish it off. It. Is. AWESOME.
Terri’s bedroom is average in size. It is painted a pale yellow and has white trim. The entire house has the most beautiful hardwood floors you have ever seen.
It had an angled bump out with two windows and the bed fits in it perfectly! We are still looking for the perfect rug, but haven’t found it yet.
In this room we painted the bed, painted and redesigned the chandelier, painted the lamps , night stands, dresser, and painted the cross. I think the only thing we didn’t paint was the mattress! I’ll share how and what we did in later posts.
Have you ever seen a bed this big? It may be big, but it is the show stopper in this room. I am so glad we didn’t put it in my bedroom because it feels like it was always meant to go in Terri’s master bedroom!
