boys bunk bed from drab to fab :)



So after months of me putting off doing the boys bunk bed i finally got it done!! yippee! i told my self after there bed was done i could move on to the other pieces i have to do. so im so excited about whats to come with my pile of finds in the garage (all smiles)

I must say first before i show how i painted it. that i wish i would have been using annie sloan chalk paint It would make it easier but i had already gotten the supplies for the bed. :) 

So here is the before. Just a all wood bunk bed from walmart in pine.
(the only picture i could find was from our old house)

* first i spray painted it to prime it. 
(in this picture part already had the first coat on it.)



* Then i painted it with martha stewart black flat paint. I did about 2 coats of that 
(big pile of bed ha there were sooo many pieces!)








*then i took a heavy sand paper and sanded up the edges.



* Then dust off before sealing it. 

* I used a wipe on poly for sealing it. i only did one coat partly cause im impatient and second because i really wanted a flat look. 


*let dry and have your husband put it together while 4 kids and 1 wife try to help ;)

That's exactly what I look for the boys bed. Very cute and dandy. Thanks for sharing such inspiring work. What you've done was surely a remark.
