Refinishing a wood bed.

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

Instead of spending a ton of money on a new bed for our guest room, I am hoping to refinish a bed I already own. I have had this bed for awhile and have long outgrown the light wood shade of it it. After reading various blogs (mainly Holly’s), I decided I should try to give it a whirl myself. The first picture is of the spare bedroom. As you can see, it’s a little, well, plain. It’s just an empty bedroom right now. The picture of the bed itself is very old and was taken ages ago. The bed is currently “in storage”, so I don’t have anything more recent. But it is in great shape and looks brand new. I am planning on sanding the wood, then painting it a nice cream color. If all goes well, I would like to have this done by Thanksgiving (I like to make realistic deadlines). I can’t wait to see the finished product!

Tell me, what have you refinished? What do you want to refinish?

    I have a refinishing project waiting to be started too! A matched set of headboard, night stand and dresser.

    I don't think the pieces will all end up in the same room but the headboard is at the top of the list for the guest room. It's starting out about the same color as yours and if all goes well, will be dark espresso stain when it's finished.

    I don't have a clue what I'm doing though but should just jump right in I suppose!

    So, Dani wants to finish something too. I wonder if she ever finished that bike ride she was going to take this spring?
