Bed Makeover

This white iron bed was mine when I was little. I forgot the take the before picture of the foot board before I began, but you get the idea. My mom bought it at a yard sale and my Dad painted it white. I never liked it growing up because it was old. My Mom always had antiques in the house and like any typical little girl I wanted what all my friends had and that was a canopy bed, not an antique iron bed. So I decided to paint it green and use it in my daughters room. She is only 4 and hasn't discoved canopy beds or whatever is cool nowadays!

I used this paint. I bought this paint because it said it had 2x's the coverage. I don't know about that. I only got the footboard painted with one can. I thought I could bo both foot and head board. But I was wrong. It is called Green Apple.

Here is the in progress picture. OK so maybe if I got more paint on the bed and not the cardboard, one can would have worked. :)
I still have the headboard and rails to paint.

Here is the finished product. I think it turned out cute! What do you think?
The next project will be a step stool to go with it.

I have posted this over at A Soft Place to Land.

Pumpkin Farm Field Trip

Lindsey's First Field Trip

Lindsey is in preschool this year and went on her first field trip to a pumpkin farm. She was so excited! She was like the little boy in the Disney commericial that said "I'm too excited to sleep" That was Lindsey. The funny thing was she was most excited to ride the school bus.

All the kids wore green shirts made by there teacher. A little big don't ya think!

She picked her perfect Lindsey sized pumpkin.

She is growing up way to fast!
Until Next Time,
