Here is what happens when you allow a 10 year old to spray paint a bed frame.
Ya, get a few drips that totally capture his heart and he decides that is the new look of the bed.
Later, when the bed is "suppose to be drying", I sneak back outside to do a little touch up.
Which he then thinks it"s amazing what has happened while it was drying.
"Hey, mom you can't see the drips as much now that it is dry".
When he first told me that he wanted the hand me down bed to be painted pumpkin orange I was a tad unsure if that was such a great idea. In the end I think it looks great. I have a plan to make those hearts disappear. Can't wait to show off what I am going to do. But, ya have to wait. Bummer!!!
Once it was dry and had time to set. Bradley helped me carry it back into his room and put it back together. Right now he is sleeping very happily on it. After all he thinks that changing the color makes the bed sleep better. Oh, the new quilt I made looks amazing! Another, ya gonna have to wait moment.
It delighted my heart to get this bed painted over the weekend. It gave me a chance to take my mind off other things that are happening right now. If by chance you want to see my design plans for this bedroom, go here.
