Here's a picture of little bitty pretending like she liked her new toddler bed when she was 2 :)
The toddler bed didn't last long.
Her queen bed takes up a lot of room though and is just not very appealing. Ever since we put it in there I've been looking everywhere for a bed frame and headboard to go with it. I have always been very interested in the whole Shabby Chic look.
One day, I was at my favorite antique store and found a headboard that I was totally in LOVE with. I couldn't stop thinking about it but the price just wasn't right. I pleaded with husband to come take a look at it at least and while we were there we found a chandelier (which I've also been searching for) for FIFTEEN dollars! You read right, $15!! SO EXCITING! So I forgot about the bed and went straight for re-doing this ugly-but-could-be-gorgeous chandelier.
Next day, I went peeking around some garages my mom has at her work (She's and apartment manager) that are full of old junk. I found the most amazing things in these dusty garages!! For FREE! Even better....
So without further ado, here is all the trashy, junky, ugly-beautiful stuff I found for Hannah's room!!!
Let's see some before pictures shall we?....
UGLY-beautiful chandelier!! LOOOVE it! (You'll see why..)
A little foot stool
And the top
Mirror, not too ugly but don't need it gold...
The bed was way more beige-brown-gross in person and has little brass accents all over the end pieces.
See the brass ball @ the top?
The dresser she already had. It's also more beige than it looks.
And the knobs...
