Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

My very first bed! That's right, this is my first time to ever paint a bed. I decided to go with a classic shabby chic look for this beautiful piece. I lightly sanded, primed and painted with Valspar  dove white. I distressed the edges and used Minwax Finishing Paste for protection because it has the least yellowing effect. Here is the before picture of the headboard, the bed was not in terrible shape but it was missing pieces of its' appliques and had some scratching.
