And when I saw it, it was cute enough, but I KNEW it had to be white if it were going in my Gabbi Girl's bedroom!
Enter TEAM Gabbi Girl! I needed recruits to get it all done in a single afternoon!
First, we used power sanders to take the top layer of finish or varnish or whatever off the antique furniture.
Then we put on a coat of white paint. Todd came out to join in on the fun at this point. (ANd I have decided I need a power sander. I loved it!) Dad, you reading this?
Once it was all white, I thought I would do a little distressing.
I think it turned out so cool!
Just perfect for my little baby girl. She is so sweet and innocent, and I think the design of this bed just screams, "gabbi"!
Then came the time to put it in the bedroom.
And we had three little monkeys who wouldn't really leave us alone to get situated!
Hey girls, get up! We need to make this bed!
They were so excited to just have the bed in the room.
Finally we convinced them to let us get some sheets and a cover on the thing.
And although I really like this bedding, it has been substituted for one with a little more "pep".
