I painted both pieces of the bed a lovely dark midnight blue and applied two coats of super-easy rub-on poly.
Behr Starless NightI love how the bed turned out! But when I was ready to attach the headboard and footboard to the bed frame things got tricky...
It seems that the frame that accompanied the bed is not original (hey, the whole shebang was free so I can't complain). It is a bolt on frame and the headboard and footboard are slotted to accommodate a hook-in frame. There are holes drilled in the headboard so that it can be attached with bolts but not the footboard. The frame is not long enough to attach a footboard anyway. Has this happened to anybody else? Do you have any creative solutions?
After some Internet searching I found the parts I need to convert the frame - for about $60. I figured it's worth it since the bed was free. A whole new bed for sixty bucks ain't bad. Right?
Here's a peek at the new paint job. I should have the new frame parts in about a week so stay tuned for the reveal!
By the way friends, I wasn't able to score those awesome Star Wars sheets at the thrift shop. Total bummer. But I'm going to keep looking!
Thanks for visiting!
