Reimagined Monday: Child's Colonial-style Bed Update

Yes, it is one of our favourite days... Reimagined Monday!

Today's post is a great example of how to update an older style bedframe to something fresh and fit for any child's or youth's room.

Here is the headboard and footboard in it's natural state... pretty common and plain:

Mista Zaugg pondered the colour options and came up with a fabulous combination that works well for a boy's or girl's room.

After some jazzing up with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Kitchen Scale, and a few touches of Emperor's Silk in Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, Voila!

Just the right amount of Chalk Paint® in 'Emperor's Silk'

The finished project:

If you love this bed, it can be yours. As much as she had fun reimagining it, Mista is selling it (side rails included) for just $225 and is already prepping for her next project.
