it’s Monday night, womp womp! Mondays are generally my least favorite day of the week. I don’t feel like I’m really into a good rhythm until at least Thursday, so I consider this a huge win to finish up a blog post for you guys this early in the week! I am cheating a little bit since this has been sitting in my basement and then my guest room for about a year or so now without any love.
It wasn’t until I just set up this GORGEOUS Civil War era (AT LEAST) cast iron bed frame that my best friend Ali let me have that I really fell in love with this cute, little diddy. It’s decidedly masculine but the long, skinny legs definitely round it all out and it works.
Here’s a look at the before (with a little bit of paint stripper on the top lip!)
I brought the natural wood back to life by sanding, staining and resealing… I wanted to play off the wood so I painted the body in Annie Sloan’s French Linen and then left the inside of the drawers as a special, little crisp pop with Annie Sloan’s Old White. Some small but mighty pulls round it all out! Very handsome if I do say so myself!
Have you ever had love at second, third or even 2 years later sight? There’s a first for everything!
