COLONEL MUSTARD DID IT - reclaiming a teenagers bedframe

Colonel Mustard did

it with the knife in

the board room!

Well someone did it!

This pine sleigh bed was stabbed, beaten, and even
 burned and most thought it was a gonner, except
 someone who knew what I can do.

Once we picked up the bedframe it was quickly apparent the 
damage was even worse then the photos showed. There were 
several gaping holes thru both the headboard and footboard.

There were many deeply carved chucks missing on most of 
the edges, but it was still solid wood and standing on all 4 legs.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do or even where to start, 
but as always it just happens suddenly. The ideas flow and
 the jazz starts and before I knew it the bed was reborn.

I had a large roll of brown vinyl left over from another 
project and a matched can of Benjamin Moore's Aura Paint in the cupboard..

I tufted the headboard and did a padded vinyl on the footboard.

Some of the other items used to finish this project were wood
 trim pieces, staples, foam batting, and an arsenal of tools.

Perfect for Miss Scarlet's bedroom.

Pin It Now!
