Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. My grandfather was larger than life and also large. At 350 lbs, he and my grandma shared a full sized bed their entire life. I remember sleeping over at their house and being put to bed before the sun went down. My grandpa was always laying in this bed with his white t-shirt on, listening to the Minnesota Twins on the AM radio.
This bed belonged grandparents. I refinished it with my dad about 12 years ago...before I fell in love with redoing furniture. If I recall, my dad did about 80% of the work. He had the bed for awhile and we recently got it back just in time to put Dylan into a big boy bed.
Here it is in all of it's glory: Superhero sheets, bed rail and no box spring cover. I'm sure my grandma is rolling over in her grave, but I am thrilled to put it to good use!
So imagine my excitement when I found this at a garage sale last week!!
Guess what I paid!! Seriously...guess...I'll tell you at the end.
The top had major stains on it, so I stripped the top and refinished it in Cherry by Minwax. A perfect match.
Now it sits in Dylan's big boy room...a perfect match to my grandparent's bed!
Here's where you come in. The dresser is missing ONE pull. I'm thinking someone out there has an extra one lying round and wants to either swap pulls with me (I have a collection you can choose from) or I will pay you for one! Pleeeaase?
And want to know what I paid for her?
You can hate me...but not for long, ok?
