Our Latest Project

It's been a while since we last posted because our free time the last couple of weeks has been completely consumed by our latest project. We decided it was time to turn our extra bedroom into an actual "guest bedroom." Most of you probably already know that we are totally cheap and look for deals on absolutely everything we buy. Rather than buying a brand new bed, we decided we would buy a bed frame off of Craigslist and just refinish it.

In the first picture below you can see the "before" picture from Craigslist and in the second picture you can see our completed bed. $150 bedframe and 30 hours of work later, I think it's pretty safe to say that we will NEVER do a project like that again.

Looks so good~! I can not believe that you already decorated the room. You are awesome . . . and FAST.

Did you decide to create a guest room so that when you move again eventually it will be more of a pain?? If you add a bed then the stupid TV doesn't move...

Nice! Looks really good! Everything is better in black, don't you think? Projects are fun but when you finish you never want to go through it again. Sonia gave me a brown dresser to use for Ryder's nursery and I wanted it white. Let me just tell you that next time I will just go shell out the money to get the dang dresser in the color I want!
