Hello amazing friends and welcome to Furniture Fixer Upper day!! Not only do I have a furniture flip for you today, so do my friends, so be on the lookout for those at the end of this post!
Today I’m sharing another piece from my Mother’s Day Haul! I am almost done with that load as well!
My piece for today is this beautifully detailed twin bed:
I rarely keep a headboard or footboard as-is. I usually repurpose it in some way, or turn it into a bench, but this one was kind of small to repurpose as a bench. Since I had both the headboard and footboard, I just decided to paint them so they could continue their job as a bed.
I almost felt bad about painting this one. It came with the rails and slats as well, but the metal piece inside the headboard where the side rail attaches was missing. It will be easy enough for the new owners to just purchase a bed frame.
This bed has a masculine feel to me, so I decided to pick out a pretty blue called Yankee Blue for this one:
I gave everything but the spindles two coats. I painted the spindles in Dusty Blue:
I wanted this set to have a more weathered, coastal feel, and I really wanted to highlight all those cool details, so I followed up by applying white wax:
I brushed it on in sections and buffed it off with a soft clean cloth, going in the direction of the grain.
Here you can see the difference with the wax added:
You can really see all those details now…
I love this pretty Dusty Blue on the spindles…
Isn’t this baby blanket the sweetest?
It has rocking horses right in the pattern. I found it at the thrift store and had to buy it. The horse and that basket are also thrift store finds that I painted.
A sweet and simple makeover for a sweet little one!

All I have left is the spindle bed, which has some damage that I still need to figure out how to remedy, and the dresser in the bottom left corner, which I have already started prepping!
Here’s the only other headboards I’ve redone that I actually kept as headboards:
