The Edna Vintage White Headboard / Footboard

Before After
What can I say? I am partial to white beds. I love em. They look so fresh and clean and can be matched up to any color of bedding! Even white. So when someone brings us a piece to be finished in our vintage white I cannot help but think good choice.
My eyes are drawn to these bed posts. The give extra heighth and elegance.
Especially when they are crowned with various levels of wood detailing and a ball.

Edna sent us another bed that resembles this one and has requested it be painted in red. I cannot wait to see what it looks like. It is fun to do colors that pop! And red does just that!

Up next we are working on three dressers. The bodies are painted and now we just have fifteen drawers!

Plus I am excited for One Thing Wednesday tomorrow! I have something wonderful to show!

It is beautiful in it's simplicity! I love it. And I can't wait to see the red! I am working on something in red right now too, and it makes me a bit nervous :)
