Big Girl Bed

Maddie's new bed is finally done.
Not the greatest pictures taken in our garage.
 This is after one coat. The color is like a Robin's Egg blue. Which I think is going to look great with her Coral colored walls in her bedroom. 
I do want to do some detail work on the scroll work, like use an accent color.
I think that would really bring out the beautiful scroll work. Ooh I made out great on the paint found a gallon of this color for $5 in Lowes on the Mistint cart.
I bought it sometime again hoping to use it for
another project and never did. We made out even
better with the primer we found a quart of primer
tinted to the exact same color we had already
picked for $2 !! How awesome is that.
I always check the mistint cart.
Now this weekends adventure is to find a mattress for it. But I see in todays paper that local mattress store
are having big sales for Presidents day weekend.
How great is that.

Then I think we'll be ready.
This is going to be something.

Linking up to:


  1. What a great idea to check the mistint cart. I always see it but usually have a specific color in mind. I think it'd be fun to create a project around a color from the bin.

    By the way, I got the onesies yesterday and they are even more adorable in person!! I love them all!! I'll be sure to post pictures of Sawyer wearing his and link back to you (: Thanks so much!
