From "nah" to "ahhhhhhh!!!!"

This was a project I had thought about tackling for awhile....I knew I wasn't going out and buying a new bed so I said hey, "think outside the box Kate" and after some planning and careful thought I came up with something!  Next I headed to Menards to purchase the wood boards and liquid nails.  I already had the stain on hand.  This project cost only 30.00.   The boards(16 of them) measuring 1x4x8 feet cost only 25.00 and the liquid nails totaled 5.00.    Total time to complete it: approximately 4 hours.  Steps involved: 1.  Taking bed frame measurements to determine how many wood boards would be needed   2.  Cutting boards to size (my awesome husband used his portable table saw) 3. Staining the boards. 4.  Paint old frames (antique white chalk paint) and distress  5.  Apply liquid nails to bed frame and place boards on top.  6.  Allow time to cure/dry (I placed heavy paint cans on top while drying)  7.  Haul new headboard/footboard inside, assemble the bed.  8.  Instant crush on the new and improved bed!  I couldn't be happier with the final product!   This may be my proudest diy moment yet....
