Although, I would hardly classify these awesome tongue-in-groove planks of wood siding "junk"!
My dad left his miter saw at our house awhile back and since he's 500 miles away, I was more than happy about that!
It made the board cuttin' task about 68 times easier. I measured each piece to about 45 inches in length, but wasn't too picky since I was going to stagger them.
The aqua paint Sarah had originally painted on the wood was gorgeous.
Just like her.
But it was a little too bold for what I was going for in Tori's room.
I watered down some white paint and brushed it on here and there, then rubbed off the excess with a rag.
I should mentioned I sanded each board pretty heavily to distress it first.
Notice the difference:
As for the bed frame? Well, my mom still hasn't gotten over it. But we hacked off the headboard of her beloved childhood bed. The one with the peel n' stick roses. Don't worry, I still have the headboard stashed away for some later brilliant idea that will hit me in the shower some day and promptly disappear when I go to retrieve the chopped off piece of mother's history!
