The Power of Spray Paint

I'm so excited that it's yard sale season again.

Since our basement is all but finished now, I have several things I'd like to find at yard sales this year.  

Saturday I found this cute little bed. It came with the mattress and a mini box spring too. My son's bed had a metal frame and with time {and I'm sure jumping too} the metal bars were all bowed. We really needed a mattress for our littlest one too, so when they said $10 for it all I was sold. 

 I really didn't mind the color. It just would not go with my sons room. 

Thanks to my husband for spray painting it.  He used Rustoleum Satin Black.

I should have taken a picture before the mattress was on it, since it's hard to see. 

So yesterday we played musical beds.  We took down my son's old bed. Put this one up.

Then we took apart the bunk bed and took one bed downstairs for my 4 year old. 

Then I took apart the toddler bed that she slept on a few nights since she could not wait to sleep in her new room downstairs.

I also bought a dresser this weekend too. More to come about that when I
repaint it. 


  1. that looks great. I bet your son was relieved it didn't stay pink

  2. That looks like a nice sturdy bed. Love the denim quilt.:)

  3. I spray painted most of my daughter's hand-me-down furniture, she loves it. I really clicked on to this post because I LOVE that denim quilt!

  4. He must be thrilled with his new bed. Now, let the jumping begin, lol. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.

  5. I just used spray paint for the first time last weekend and I'm glad it was on something for outside. I did a horrible job. I love your bed frame though. It looks amazing. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays!

  6. Paint makes all the difference! Great job!

  7. Yeah for paint - and a touch of black!!!

  8. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday link party. Amazing what a little paint can do.

    I can’t wait to see what you link up this week. Have a great day.


  9. Oh the power a can of spray paint holds. This is a delightful transformation! I'll bet your sons has that bed for many years! Thanks for sharing tis at my party! I can't wait to see what you share next!
