Guest Room Bed

We bought this bed unfinished in 1995.  We stained it and applied a heavy dose of poly.

We used it for 11 years as our bed and then it moved to the guest room when we switched to a king.

Our lovely dog loves to hang out in the guest room because the bed is level with the windows and she can see right out.  Little did we know she was chewing on the bed finial.

I went to Home Depot and purchased new deck post finials ($3.50 each).

They look like it too!  Hubby was not a fan.

Not so bad once it had some ASCP in Old White.

The bed received two coats of paint, clear wax and distressing.

You did such a great job. Doing something similar to my son's bed has been on my to do list for a while.
