Yard sale deal...?

I am not sure if I got the STEAL or if the person selling me this bed got the DEAL. I was driving by this yard sale, on my way to my in-laws, and I saw this cute little bed that kind of matched this queen size bed that we have in the babies room. I was so excited, so I stopped and went over to it, asked how much it was and the lady said $20, then she said she would give it to me for $15 after I bargained with her a bit! I was all sorts of excited! UNTIL, I picked it up and put it in my car, I realized I just bought a piece of junk...it was particle board, light as a feather, and all the paint around the bottom and top was all chipping away. Geeze I am ditz! I thought it was real wood just looking at it sitting there. (tear)
When I got home I was so bummed, but I decided to use a couple cans of left over spray paint, so that in case I couldn't get the UGLY-CHEAP out, then it wouldn't be much more of a waste! So here it is. it's okay I guess, still looking for a nicer one to go in the room, but for now baby T is still in her crib anyway.
The BEFORE
The AFTER....It's GREEN alright...I still have to decorate the room, that is still to come, and so is my idea for the black table next to the bed!!!

Well, it doesn't look like a cheap bed...it looks like a boutique item now that its green! You'll be so glad you only spent $15 for it when you daughter wants something TOTALLY different a few years from now. I'm your newest follower!

Who cares if it's cheap wood, you have made it look adorable! And 15 bucks, get outta town. It goes perfectly with the bedding and that owl is the bomb!

Thanks for the visit and I am now your newest follower. Can't wait to see what else you do on top of your already great projects.

Thanks for stopping by "In His Grip". You've taken a "cheap" bed and made it into something that is worth it. I love trash to treasure stuff, you did great!

I think we got the desk/hutch thing that went with this bed at a garage sale a few years back....I painted the bottom distressed black & it has become our sofa table....it originally had mushroom knobs - yikes! Well done - love the green!
