I tried to explain to Jason once about girls and 4 poster beds…he didn’t get it. I bought this bed on Ebay (from Restoration Hardware) about 12 years ago for our bedroom in our Town Traditional because we had these gorgeous 10 foot ceilings. I LOVE this bed but Jason…not so much.
Soon after we moved into our second home we got a different bedroom set (the same as we have now) but I was determined to keep the four poster one. We have been wanting to add a queen bed to our little girl’s room for guests and after getting a new mattress thanks to a sweet gift card we decided it was time for a four poster bed redo!
Four Poster Bed Redo

The four poster bed was really tall… (Our family is not breaking any Genius book of world records for height any time soon…so Jason cut off 4 inches of the feet to make the bed a little lower!
We spray painted it Valspar’s secluded garden with paint and primer mixed in. We needed 5 cans at $4 each.
I really like spray painting furniture. It looks more professional in my opinion with no paint brush marks and it is crazy EASY.
I love the color too, it’s like a cool green blue.
Unfortunately, I must have accidentally deleted the before pictures of the bed because I can’t find them anywhere… sorry guys!
We gave her our floral duvet cover from Anthropologie we had bought for our stone cottage and an old white bedspread I bought from the thrift shop I used to work for. The other quilt and pillow cover are from Pottery Barn Kids.
I bought in a wide legged small card table from our garage for her dollhouse.
It’s the perfect height and it swivels so she can turn it without our help. Jason had refinished years ago as an end table and we hadn’t found a spot for it yet until now.
Both Jason and I love the look of the bed even more now and Audrey calls it her “Frozen” bed.
Anybody wonder why? 🙂
I also painted the trim in the room white.
Two coats, two days and it probably needs another (why can’t we ever buy a house with white trim)!
We still have a few more things planned like a built in seat and bookcase, new floor and some other minor remodeling and decorating tweaks but I am excited about how it’s coming along and I love how the bed turned out!!! AND even Jason likes it now:)
Hope you guys are having a good week & family and friends this is officially your invitation to come enjoy this new bed:).
