Yes I did!

Oh yes I did!

Remember my last post that blogger ate?

I shared with ya'll my very cherry glossy bed.

Decked out in Madison's teething marks..ha!

She would literally stand in my bed and teethe on my headboard.

Not to mention all the other years of scratches and chips.

"Trust me"... I told my husband.."It can't hurt"

He has heard those words many times before..hahaha

So I started with a liquid sander.

A must!

I HATE to sand and this product works like a charm :)

After two coats of liquid sander and one coat of paint...

It was starting to take on a whole new life.

I felt the room brighten!

I think I may have even laughed out loud a little.

Maybe because I was so relieved I didn't screw it up...ha!

It did take a day to get use to the brightness,

but I love it!

Not to mention the new wall color...

Cobblestone by Martha Stewart.

It's the same color as Madisons room.

I loved it that much :)

The bed and the wall are not the only things getting painted in here.

Can't wait to show ya'll my next project!

hint.. hideous gold spinning object ;)

(fingers crossed here)

  1. Beautiful! Don't you love how some paint can brighten a room???

  2. It looks gorgeous. You did a really great job with the painting. I can't wait to see the whole room.

  3. I have the very same bed and would love to paint it but I simply don't have the nerve. You are very brave!

  4. You did an amazing job, it's really beautiful! I'm happy I found your blog, I'll be back to see what your next clever thing you'll do!


  5. Those rice beds are a bear to paint with all the detail. You did a great job I am sure the room will turn out amazing! Can't wait to see the next project.

  6. Gorgeous! It was pretty before, but looks so fresh now. Sometimes scratches, or teething marks, makes it that much easier to just jump in. Way to go! I really need to get started on our night tables and dresser soon.

  7. looks great so far. can't wait to see all of it!


  8. WOW -- brave woman you are! AND it looks fabulous! Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. :)

  9. You have given me the courage to NOT buy new furniture for our second home in Gulf Shores BUT to paint what we wanted to take and paint it!!! Thank you, Susiegirl!!

  10. Good on you for being so brave, it looks fantastic. It must have been an absolute curse to paint, but imagine having to strip it.

  11. Hi Susie,

    I love the new look of the headboard! It's amazing what a coat of paint can do.

  12. It's gorgeous! I love it! I hope we are going to get to see the reveal of the entire bedroom. :)

  13. Absolutely beautiful! I have a bed that looks a lot like this one-it may see white paint in it's future! Now I am off to read about liquid sanding! Cindy

  14. oh, it turned out so lovely!!!!!

  23. Nicely done! I'm painting bedroom furniture, too. Such a chore, isn't it? Can't wait to see your completed room!

  24. I can't wait to see the whole room! I've got some Jenny Lind twin beds that I really want to paint white. I'm using both headboards as our king headboard, and they are in sad shape as far as color. This inspires me! : )

    It seems that a lot of people are letting go of the fear of painting their bedroom furniture :) I too have a cherry wood four poster bed and have been a little anxious about painting it but I think I have found inspiration ;)Thanks for sharing!

  28. I love it!!! It looks magnificent. Can't wait to see all the other goodies you are doing in your room.

    I made one of the totes you made last year for my mom. I posted it on my blog.


  29. So gorgeous Susan!!
    Im sure it must totally brighten up the glad you're so happy with it!

    Deborah xoxo

  30. Love the way your wall color and the white bed work together! So glad I found your blog and can't wait to see the rest of the room!

  31. I have a whole bedroom suite of this cherry mahogany Queen Anne furniture, it was my folks ( the bed is a double!)...It is so beat up, it is in my guest room, and I painted the walls a sheer sheer pink... I would love to do this, can you please let me know about the liquid sand product and how you used it and what kind of paint? Is it wall paint? Gloss, Semi gloss? I am so ready to do this! :):) It is going to be 100 degrees plus here verys oon, perfect indoor project! Sandy @

  32. WOW!! Don't you just love how a little elbow grease and some paint can transform something so drastic!?! I love it!!! Great job, lady!

  33. I'm with Sandy above, I would love more info on the liquid sander and what kind and color of paint you used. I would appreciate it! Thanks for the inspiration!


  34. i painted my ceiling fan a few days ago too! however, all i painted were the blades and it made a huge difference. i think i'm actually going to keep the gold on the rest of the fan...for now! great job!!

  35. waiting with baited (sp?) breath, wondering if i wanted very similar colors in my bedroom. mustard, grey, navy, white. i just can't choose.

  36. What brand, finish, and color paint did you use? I'm looking to do the same thing with my furniture and I came across this post. I'm a newbie at DIY and I love how yours turned out, so I'd appreciate the pointers!


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
