Annie Sloan Antoinette Pink BabyBed Bench

Remember that epic garage sale I told you about a few months back?   I ended up buying lots of beds that day and hubby thought I was crazy to say the least!  

Headboards and Beds found at the Epic Garage Sale via Curb Alert!

I am happy to report that I have turned lots of them into benches and sold quite a few!
My Love is very pleased to get them out of the garage!

One of the beds I purchased was this sweet little antique baby bed.

It was tough at first for about a minute to paint over the little bear graphic, but once it started to take shape I was excited about the transformation.

I painted it with Annie Sloan "Antoinette" Chalk Paint.  It's a sweet light pink color that looks so soft and pretty in person.  

The bench seat is constructed out of brand new pine wood and stained with a home-made vinegar stain then drybrushed over with some Annie Sloan "Graphite" Chalk Paint. 

I then sealed it all with two coats of Minwax Polycrylic to add that extra bit of durability.

I am pleased that my friend purchased it for her photography business.


Can you see it with an adorable baby or cute toddler posing on it? 

I cannot wait to see what amazing portraits that she comes up with - I hope she loves it! 

Have a great weekend!
