The girls room is almost ready for a full reveal! So exciting to finally have it almost finished and I’m thrilled to have the carpet gone! The room seems bigger and more open just by switching out the carpet for hardwood.
Since the room isn’t quite ready for its beauty shots I thought I’d at least show you the girls bed. It’s an antique bed painted with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.
The bed is old – not sure just how old but it’s been around awhile! It is walnut and would be lovely refinished natural but I wasn’t into spending the money to have it refinished and I prefer to paint if I do it myself.
I love how the detail in the carvings pops now. Before you really couldn’t see the detail that well. Now the sweet scallops show up to perfection 🙂
The bedding is a duvet cover I purchased at IKEA. I have an idea I’d like to make for a cover for their bed but it won’t be a quick, whip-it-out-in-one-day kind of project. So this will do for now. I stuffed their quilt inside the cover for now – we’ll see how long it looks nice – it will probably soon be a huge messed up lump!
The pillow was from IKEA too. Larke picked the pillow. Somehow we are going to make it all work!
Becca bought this nightstand at my Grandma’s auction. I’d like to paint it sometime but haven’t taken the time yet. You can see the stenciled wall in this post.
It’s always so interesting to see how the milk paint behaves. You just never know where it will come off and how much.
Larke added the teddy bear too. My girls have an extreme love of stuffed animals. I’ll have to include some shots of all their critters when I take pics of the whole room.
Hopefully a full reveal is coming soon!
