I wish I had a reveal to post but a 4 room makeover with furniture refinishing is a pretty big project.  Through in there that my family of 7 have all been sick the past 2 1/2 weeks!   Yea I've been a busy Mama.

But Im so in love with this paint color from Valspar I wanted to give you guys a sneak peek at a piece of furniture Im working on for the new nursery.    Well she's turning 1 so I dont know if it's a nursery anymore. lol

The project Im giving you a peek of is an antique childrens bed that I purchased for a lady in Jersey off Craigslist!  She was moving and they needed it gone.....I'll take it thank you very  much!

This is how it looked 

Side rail on top for sanding/painting

This is the finished product with my own distressing

I wanted it to look old as if it has been passed down for generations.

Wait to you see this piece in the new nursery....reveal coming up soon!

My new best friend...the color is ATLANTIC GRAY SR1009

It has the look of a Robins Egg Blue but so much richer and I just love it.  I will have to invest in a 1 Gallon can for all the things I have planned.
