This was a surprisingly quick project!
~woot-woot! Luv when that happens!
I made a few minor repairs, cleaned the frame, then got painting. Easy-peasy!
Tuesday I worked on the upholstery part of this project, and again— easy-peasy -AND fun!
One of the things I absolutely wanted to do from the very beginning was pad and upholster the flat rail of the foot board. It was just sO blah—it needed something!
*See what I mean from the picture below? B o r i n g.
The picture below shows some of the details, with the pointer showing where I had to seam the fabric on each side to get the extra width needed to wrap the whole bed frame. The texture of the fabric left such a subtle line!
With only a few hours of work, I love the outcome –but–
I still think it would’ve been cOOler to be upholstered in grain sack— can you see it?!? I’ll be watching to buy more and replenish my stock.
If I was keeping this bed, I’d also give it a boost with reproduction casters. Just love that style foot board! ♥
I think this would make a fabulous guest bed—with a linen or lace bedskirt & soft white mattelasse coverlette over goose down!
I’m sharing this project with a couple of my favorite linky parties!
