Antique Bed BEFORE and AFTER

I was on the hunt for an old antique bed.  I looked and looked and knew I'd found it when I saw this solid oak piece. Antique beds like this are hard to find, especially if you don't want to pay a fortune!! 
I was inspired by Restoration Hardware's new bed line. I especially like their "Empire Rosette" collection. Go to Restoration Hardware to see their amazing new lines.

I had a local artist paint it for me. Didn't she do an amazing job?
Perfect gray with a light glaze rub.
Isn't it a beauty?
This bed is FOR SALE for $1,500 if you are interested.  It is a double but I have the adjustments for it to become a queen.  Mattress and boxspring shown are not for sale.
Look around YOUR house today, are there furniture items that could be painted that could transform and update their look totally?  I bet you have a treasure right in front of you.  Hope this inspires you!
Have a good weekend!
