I love old bed frames, unfortunately some of them have seen better days....This bed frame was no exception.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram I have been posting a bunch of half finished projects lately, well I promise I am actually finishing them.
First up is the Baby Boy's quilt!
When I was pregnant with my 2nd baby girl I took a basic quilting class from one of my good friends. I learned how to piece and how big to make a seam, is is 1/4 of an inch, but that was about the extent of it. I had intentions of learning more but we moved before I gave birth so I had her quilt basted, quilted and bound by my friend.
I LOVE this quilt pattern I don't have to match any corners and it comes together pretty fast! I had intended on having a neighbor baste, quilt and bind this quilt for me as well until my husband encouraged me to learn how to do it myself. After all he did just buy me 2 new Bernina sewing machines.
I used Blake Riley's Scoot line for this quilt.

I went out on a limb with this hutch, usually when I am painting something this big to sell I play it safe and go really neutral but I was tired of neutral. I am glad I took the chance I love the color and the cream stripes add so much charm to an already beautiful piece.
I don't have a name for this paint color, as I mixed a few colors together to create it! The paint I was going to originally use was a bit too bright so I added some gray and cream until I got this shade, just perfect for a hutch!
It has been lightly distressed and glazed with a dark brown oil based glaze to help all those fun details POP!

I have always been a fan of purples! My wedding was lavender and silver and at one time we had a very lavender bathroom, good thing my husband doesn't seem to mind the purple family!
It makes me so excited to see lavender coming back into style it is so pretty don't you think!!
Pillows always add so much character to a piece.
All these pillows are made out of designer quilting fabric with an envelope closure in the back. The large turquoise and bird pillow are 18x18, the chevron and polkadot ones are 16x16, and the center green one is 14x14 ! I added a few ruffles and a flower for a little added texture!
Here is a little peek at the headboard without the pillows, I love the stripes, which are painted with a lighter lavender. I slightly distressed this piece and then sealed it all up with a clear lacquer in satin for a slight shine and added protection! (this is a color I just mixed up so I don't have a name)
This piece is FOR SALE and includes:
5 pillow envelopes (not the forms)
the bed rails
and box springs
all for $250

What a fun adventure staging this house has been! When my friend/real estate agent Ryan Larsen contacted me on Monday about staging a house he had listed, I was a little hesitant to take on such a tall order. Staging an entire house.....eek!
Fortunately for me I have an entire garage full of furniture and a few too many knick knacks floating around the house! After much thought I decided to take on this job.
I knew it was going to be a lot of work, but hey why not!

I seem to always start out a blog post with "I LOVE HOW THIS TURNED OUT" for some odd reason I can't think of a better way to say it! I LOVE HOW THIS TURNED OUT! I supposed it is a good thing I am selling things I personally love!

Looky what I finally finished today!
I have a cute little girl who comes and sands for me and helps me with whatever I may need help with for the day. She LOVES fun bright colors and inspired me to paint this vintage bed a fun color. I am so glad she did as I love this bed in turquoise!
