DIY-ing it

So it’s time for a big boy bed. In fact, Triptyn has been sleeping on a twin mattress on the floor for about 6 months. Ha, are we the worst parents? Finally, we got a bed from my mother-in-law, but it was a little beat up and blah. I mean, it’s gone through her four boys and my nephews. After looking at other amazing women and their blogs, I decided I could paint it. No big deal, right? Well take a look for yourself. Now keep in mind, this is my first painting project EVER! (and they make it sound way easier than it is, I thought I could whip it out in a couple of days, I started a week ago and I’m only half done!)

(can you see the pure awesomeness of my painting skills?!)

It’s not a true before and after. I forgot to take a picture before I started, so one is the headboard and one is the footboard. :) But you get the idea. I’m not done yet, but couldn’t wait to post a picture. Let me know what you think. My amazing husband just got home from work and told me it looks girly :(  Way to shoot a girl down after all her hard work. I will post a picture of how it looks in his room when he’s not sleeping in there!

Love the bed! I always want to buy old stuff and paint it up all cute... too bad I don't have any money or any time! They do make it look so easy on all of the blogs, yours looks great!
