Project ReStyle #2

A few weeks ago, we were on the search for Anne a "big girl" bed.  Gigi and Papa wanted to get her one for her birthday :) Of course we hit all the local furniture stores and kept finding the same stuff that isn't even made very well.  A few weeks earlier I had seen a really cute twin bed in an antique store, but didn't know if it would work.  After having no luck in all the stores, we decided to just go by and look at the antique bed.  I really loved it even more this time. It passed Papa's "are you good enough for my granddaughter test" so we were good to go!

I begged my sweet hubby to remind me to always go to the antique stores first! I would always rather have something with lots of character and made to last than something that's probably going to tear up in a few years.

Basically, we just cleaned it up a bit and added a few coats of paint.  I love the way it turned out, and we girls had such a fun time working on it!

She snuggled down in it for the first time tonight and fell fast asleep.  I know she will enjoy it for many years to come :)
