Now we're sleeping in it.
Here's the original Craigslist find. No offense if you like white+brass bed frames. I find them cheesy. I liked the shape of this one enough though to purchase it and go through the trouble of painting it yellow.
Boy is it ever hard to find a decent yellow in a spray paint. Unless you want something really really YELLOW, you're better off going with something in the green or blue department. I am picky about my yellows, and thankfully I ended up finding Rust-Oleum's "Summer Squash" yellow in their American Accents collection. And THIS little spray-paint handy helper is a lifesaver.
So, here's the frame before. . .
And here it is AFTER. . .
Much better, eh?
I haven't painted the night tables yet. Don't look at those. Look at the pretty buttery yellow bed frame. And the pretty can't-believe-how-perfect-it-matches bedspread our friends Bryan+Leah gave to us as a housewarming gift (it's from Target, as are the curtains).
