Vintage Day Bed Makeover

I bought this revolting old day bed at auction. With some white paint, a new mattress and some effort I've turned it into a gorgeous vintage day bed.

Now for sale in my booth.

Don't you just love knowing that things can be transformed with elbow grease and a little love!

  1. Wow! Gorgeous! And I know how disgusting and smelly some items in auctions are (like my chaise lounge).
    This looks amazing. This'll be a quick sale! :)

  2. This is way too cute! Hard to believe it's the same piece. It won't stay in your shop long!

  3. Wow ! what an interesting blog.Thanks for sharing this

  9. OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is a SPECTACULAR transformation. Wish you lived closer!! (I was born in Sydney, now living in beautiful Nova Scotia)

  10. This is fabulous! It so belongs over at my Club G.W. Party going on right now. (In the U.S. we have Goodwill Stores, hence the G.W., but then you probably already know that!) Hope to see you there!
