Sweet Dreams

Thanks to Holly at Life in the Fun Lane and her Fresh Coat Fridays, I have decided to post my newest transformation. My Dad bought me this sleigh bed for my 16th Birthday, almost 10 years ago now!

Even though it has spent many of its years in storage, I have always loved it. Five months ago, I dusted it off and returned it to its rightful place. Even though I love it so much, I have always dreamt of it being a creamy white, french country style sleigh bed.

When my beautiful sister Rebecca at Painting the Roses White decided to drive her paint compressor out from Edmonton, I jumped at the chance to make my dreams come true.

Here is my dream turned into reality. I love the way it turned out! I distressed it slightly to give it that french country feel.

I literally smile every time I walk into my room now. I don't think it will be taking a trip back into storage any time soon!

It is amazing what a little white paint can do. It totally changed the feel of my room. Now I can move on to something new!
