White Chalk Painted Bed

Posted by on Mar 19, 2013 in chalk paint, painted furniture | 24 comments

A lovely bed for another lovely friend.

This bed now proudly sits under custom art work hung by a clothesline. . .

Surrounded by all things pink. . .

Her new owner couldn’t be more pleased.

Which makes me so happy!

Yet, I am a bit disappointed with myself. . .

I always tell my children that life will be much easier for them if they can learn from other peoples’ mistakes.

It will save them a world of hurt and heartache.

And, if you can’t learn from other peoples’ mistakes.

At least, learn from your own.

Which I obviously have not done myself.

Because once again. . .

I have to confess.

And, apologize.

No “before” pictures.

When will I ever learn?!

You will just have to trust me.

This was an amazing transformation!

  1. Gosh, I do that ALL the time! If you ever figure out a good reminder for taking before photos, please share it with me! Beautiful bed!

  2. As my hubby always says as he walks by while I am transforming a piece…Did you take before picture? I got tired of him saying this and now 95% of the time, I take before picture. Your bed is lovely.

  3. it’s beautiful, I’d love to see it “at home”!

  4. Awesome bed Melissa, love how your made her pretty. I love the older styles, (except for maybe the ugly 70’s). Will you be showing us the bed when she gets home? Hope so.
    If you have a spare blackboard put it up where you work on your projects and write in Capital letters: TAKE BEFORE PICS/DON’T FORGET
    Just a little suggestion. Happy Days

  5. so pretty! those spindles are no easy task and you did it beautifully!

  6. Beautiful bed…Beautiful makeover!

  7. This is beautiful. I am visiting you via No Minimalist Here. I would love for you to stop by My Dream Canvas. I am hosting a Giveaway for my blog’s birthday. Please join in if you like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. What a beautiful bed! Love it in white. I’ve been tempted to paint my own bed white, and seeing this makes me want to even more.

  9. It is beautiful…proof is in the “after” picture!


  10. I forget all the time! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m getting ready to do the same thing to a single bed I have.

  11. That looks awesome!

  12. I would love, love, love to be able to transform the vintage bed suite I have in our guest bedroom like this! I can imagine that it probably was that kind of walnut color before? Making it white like this makes all the difference in the world! Good for you!

  13. I can imagine the before, what a beautiful job!! Just hopped over from Alderberry Hill, I look forward to exploring your blog some more:)

  14. No BEFORE PIX? That’s ittttt….. go to your room!

    Just kidding! But you know, maybe a stranger, scolding you in Illinois one snowy day will help remind you to take those befores, because that AFTER pix is soooo great! Imagine if we could have seen it before ! ๐Ÿ™‚


    Happy Easter Coming soon and it’s always great to see creative minds at work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. The bed looks amazing, I love the style. Gorgeous. Thanks for joining TTT and I hope you have a very Blessed Easter. Hugs, Marty

  17. Hi, just found your blog. Love the bed you painted. What kind and color of paint did you use ? Was this bed cherry or dark wood and did you have to use a primer or sandpaper? It turned out lovely. I have one I am thinking of painting. Thanks in advance for any info.

  18. Nice job! It’s beautiful! I have been wanting to do my kitchen cabinets in chalk paint. Just having a hard time getting myself motivate to tackle that job yet. It will be a lot of work. Thanks for sharing.

  19. That is a beautiful bed!

  20. I featured you today! http://www.settingforfour.com/2013/04/5-fabulous-furniture-makeover-projects.html Shared and pinned! Thanks for sharing at project inspired linky party!

  21. jist bought this same bed and I am painting it white!

    • I just bought this same bed too. I do have a before photo-LOL I am currently in the process of painting it shabby chic white also, but I have added a couple of rose appliques to make it a little more feminine.

  22. I just had to stop by your blog when I saw the name of it on someone elseโ€™s sidebar. โ€œNot JUST a Housewife.โ€ That is a GREAT name!!!!!!! I just had to tell you that. The wire cloche is pretty cool. You have some really wonderful ideas! Congratulations on a terrific blog!

  23. There has been no use of boastful materials and whole palette is locally sourced while fully exploiting the abundantly available resources and local labor. Usual interior elements such as cladding, carpentry, POP false ceiling, painting and flooring work have no role to play in this project & are completely eliminated.
