Four Poster Bed Redo

Our Girl's Room - Part II - Four Poster Bed Red

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!

We transformed out our old outdated 4 poster bed into a pretty blue bed perfect for a girl's room with just a few cans of spray paint!

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.

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.

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:)

  5. I love her room. So darling but not so babyish that she can’t grow with it. What color are her walls? Pinks can be so hard sometimes, and I love how soft it is. Thanks! Great job!

  6. Hi there,

    I’m thinking of buying this exact bed off of Craigslist and painting it. Have you have any trouble with the pine knots bleeding through since you painted it? Thanks for any advice!

    1. Hi Julie! Thanks so much for stopping by to check our four poster bed redo. I had not even thought about knots until I saw your comment:). After checking out the bed Just now I did see one quarter size knot bleeding through a little. I think because the color we chose is pretty dark I may never have noticed it otherwise. The bed is fantastic and we love it. It’s super sturdy and has lasted lots of kids and dogs jumping up and down on it:). Hope this helps your decision, take care, Tara

      1. Thanks so much for your reply! Saw the bed today and it IS beautiful! Sadly, the mattress and box spring I have for it are WAY too tall . Even if I rigged it for just a mattress only, it would still be too high. Such a bummer! Thanks for your help though!
