And one step at a time I am getting my room back in order, starting with a bed.
I was very excited when the UPS man came to my door today to deliver my bed frame.
Total cost, $61.38 with the shipping.
I don't have a headboard but that's ok, without a headboard I can switch it around.
I ordered another print which I am going to put next to that one.
Many years ago, I bought this cute little wicker and wire stand at a dollar store, I think it was around 7 dollars.
After years of being used and abused and time spent on the porch, it was looking bad.
I decided to take it apart and paint the wicker.
Unfortunately, the screws were rusted.
Ready to go.
I cleaned them with a dry paint brush to remove any dust and debris.
I have green paint left over from the trim in my room, and creme from the walls, so in order to keep the theme and waste not, want not, I opted to use it.
Once dried, I used to creme to give it that distressed look, using a small roller and wiping some off with an old rag.
Once dried, I trimmed some of the stray pieces off, then sprayed it with acrylic clear coat.
Wala, the finished project, a recycled wicker stand ala shabby chic!
I'm not happy with the lamp, but I will find something I like.
One step at a time.
I don't plan on using this as an end table permanently, but it does for now.
