You know you have awesome friends when they get who you are and know what you love doing. Our dear friends down the road were getting rid of their spare bed and asked if I would like it.ย  I nearly threw my back out with excitement and gratefully accepted. We have had a bedroom that has been without a bed in it since we moved in 2 years ago and sure would help to squeeze in all the family when they come to stay! Today I’m sharing how to paint a farmhouse bed frame for a Fresh new look.

Step 1 – Pop one capful of TSPย into some warm water and mix. Then using your rags give the entire bedframe a wipe down. Let dry completely. Then over all the places where you would like the wood to still come trough rub with your beeswax stick. This acts as a resistance to paint and makes it much easier for the paint to come off when distressing. Using your brush give the entire bed 2 coats of paint. For this queen size bed, I used one pot of paint.

  1. Fantastic. Isn’t paint the most wonderful things? Paint changes anything and makes it feel fresh and new again.

    I’m finishing up candle holders with chalk paint and waxes to give them a French look and I am over the moon with the first one so far. Can’t wait to finish.

    Enjoy your weekend

  2. Thank goodness for paint. Whoever invented it many, many moons ago deserves a medal in my humble opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ That old bed is totally transformed, you’d never say it was the same one. And I just have to ask, where did you get that beautiful spoon and fork on either side? They’re stunning and fir the whole look of the room so perfectly.
