My sister sent me a link to this pretty bed that was listed on Craigslist and the price was right (cheap) so I went and picked it up the same day.
The full size frame is perfect for this little room. I have a pair of midcentury modern night stands in the garage that will fit just right here also.
The wood is not worth saving (even though I love the pretty design!).
There's a cracked part on the headboard that needs to be filled probably with Bondo, which means we'll need to paint the frame. I think white will make it look too PB Kids, so maybe something like black?
I want to upholster the inset of the frame. Probably not tufted this time, but I did a similar project here.
Ever since the yellow chair experiment, I've been thinking a lot about tone on tone frames and upholstery. Maybe a bright cobalt blue on the frame with this pale blue cotton fabric I picked up during a 50% off sale for about $9 a yard?
Maybe a contrasting tape under the nail heads, too?
What would you do? Don't you just love it when the footboard curves back in? That's my favorite part of the bed and I think it will look even better when it's upholstered and outlined with tape and nail heads!
