The Baby Bed:
Lately I have been in a bit of project withdrawal so instead of carrying the Baby Bed pieces up into the attic I decided to do a quick makeover instead!

Here is the before:  
It has a sticker on it for $5 but last summer when I inquired about it the woman at the garage sale gave it to me for free.  I loved the little details and how it is heavy solid wood (another reason I didn't want to carry it up the attic stairs).


I have kept it for the intention of painting it to match Buttercup's new room so I quickly grabbed a can of spray-paint and had a little fun!   I am going to use it as a little decorative railing and hope
it will go well with a few things we already have.  Here's a few hints of what I am using in her room:

Revamping the Red Shutters that originated as our Red Shutters in the Entry Way:


And here is the new and improved Baby Bed in Blue!  I think I am loving the new backdrop for my upcoming photo shoots.  This is looking out into the back portion of our new 1 1/2 acre property!  So far I love it! ( and so do the snakes, bugs and scorpions! EEK!!!)  I'll share more pictures once I get the entire room in order.


Thanks for hanging in there with me and on a more important note - WOW!  I have to turn the news off because hearing one more story about the storms is breaking my heart to pieces.  Hug your loved ones and join me in sending a little prayer up to those that have been affected by all of the recent storm devastation!
