Lost and Found

During my yard sale journeys I came across a simple twin bed once enjoyed by a young boy who is now a man. His parents were in the process of downsizing and helped me load his bed into my van.

As I began transforming his bed it occured to me this is where he dreamed, played, ran a fever, read books under the covers with a flashlight, and had the comforts of home. I hope he would not be disturbed by the shabby transformation of his childhood furniture!

With a scrolly applique and layers of white paint, here is the result! I hope this dreamy bed will be enjoyed just the same - dreaming, playing, nursing fevers and reading books by flashlight.

I have the bed for sale at Ms. Wendy's Antiques in Senoia, Ga. I began selling items at Ms. Wendy's in September of 2008. It has been a fun and rewarding journey!

If you see me dashing down the road with a large coffee at 7:30 on a Saturday morning, honk fast - a girl has some serious yards sales to find - Ha!
