Check out my bunk bed transformation! My husband and I had been in the market for a bunk bed for awhile. Wal-Mart has some cute ones in the $250 price range, but really I just wanted an old bunk bed that I could paint, because I LOVE painted wood!!!! I know it's probably trendy, but I LOVE IT! So, then one day we got pretty dang lucky. Back in May, my hubby was taking my daughter to school and on the side of the road he saw a bunk bed with a sign that said, "FREE BUNK BED." He called me and I immediately thought that it must be falling apart and ugly if it's free. Then he sent me a picture of it on my phone and I was THRILLED!!!! It was sturdy solid wood with cool rod iron detail. This is the bed I had dreamed of finding and IT WAS FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! I knew that after a little paint and magic, it would be PERFECT! Please take a look at the before and after.
I didn't even prime this beauty. Just 3 coats of white paint, distressing with sandpaper, stain to give it an antique look and one coat of polyurethane. Oh yeah. Do you like the cute damask bed spreads?? It's a bed in a bag from Wal-mart.com.
I am really into chandeliers right now, aren't you? Check out this one from IKEA. It's $39.99, which isn't too bad for a chandelier.
