Childhood Bed Makeover

This was one of my weekend projects that I did with my daughter Emi. This is her first bed after sleeping in a crib. It is the bottom bed of a bunk bed. We decided to give it a grown up look. We used grey spray paint to give the whole bed a base coat. 


Then we laid lace over the areas we wanted to give texture. I bought half a yard for 2.50 at Walmart.  Next time I would have bought a bigger piece. Because after spray painting over the same area 3 times, there is a little bleed through of spray paint in areas I did not want it to bleed. It all still turned out just fine. We used back spray paint for this process. 






It looks darker when wet. It does lighten up when dry. 


We love how it looks! Wish I could show you what the bed looks like all put together. That show in tell will just have to wait until the big reveal of her room. Which could take a few weeks. I am now a weekend warrior or DIY'er. There is so much more to do, and share. 


Hopefully tomorrow I will get a chance to show the bunkie board make over. We redid the whole bed. I loved ever min of it. Great way to relax over the weekend.
