Last fall, Marshall got a new mattress for his bed, so we had an extra twin mattress. I’ve been hanging onto it in the hopes that I could find a great twin bed frame to match, so I can set up a comfy, fluffy bed at Lucketts. I had one last year and it was such a nice touch of softness in the booth and a great place to display linens and pillows. (And it was a pretty nice place to crash at the end of the first day!)
I’ve been looking for a few months and I finally hit the craigslist jackpot with this beautiful, antique cottage-style bed…
I mean, it’s pretty great, right?!
Of course, I’m going to paint it a different color. This one isn’t terrible in the pictures, but it looks a little “fleshy” in person.
When I saw the listing, it only mentioned the headboard and footboard, so I figured I would have to fashion side rails, but it was such a bargain that it would be worth the effort. Well, it not only came with side rails, but just about the best side rails ever in the world!
That may be an exaggeration, but I am so in love with the cutout detail where it connects with the headboard and footboard. It’s a very German touch, in my opinion, which is completely my thing.
For colors, I’m thinking French Enamel, Mustard Seed Yellow, Kitchen Scale or Boxwood. Maybe even Farmhouse White or Linen, though…
I’m still waiting for it to speak to me.
What color would you paint it?
