Bed Spray Painted Pumpkin Orange

The weather has been to windy to do any kind of spray painting. But, finally this weekend  I just took a chance and went for it. This is one project we have been anxiously waiting to get done.  We (as in Bradley and I ) pulled the bed outside into the back yard. Grabbed our cans of pumpkin spray paint.

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


  1. I am intrigued as to what you are going to do next to his bed to make the hearts disappear, and the part where you sneak out to fix the drips and he thinks they fixed themselves by drying is priceless!

  2. Can't wait to see what you do next! You're an awesome mom!

  3. That's so sweet that you allowed your son to help. Excited to see what you do with the hearts.

  4. I'm too much of a foolish perfectionist when I do projects, so I admire you for allowing your son to help!

    I LOVE his color scheme! My kids all graduated from the same high school as I did, and the school colors are glorious orange and blue!

  5. I LOVELOVELOVE the color orange- especially the pumpkin tones! So, needless to say, I adore this bed. Simply can't wait to see the quilt and what you've got in mind to change the heart flourishes disappear. SO glad I found you!!!!

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment. I am working away on that bedroom and can't wait to share what I have done.

  6. You know this captures my heart! L.O.V.E. the orange, and I love that you let your kiddo pick the color. I get a little tired of spaces that do not look like the kids had any say in the matter of their room. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  7. LOVE that you did Orange, how fun!!!


Goodness, you just made my day a little sweeter. Thanks Bunches!
