After marrying and moving, I'm sorry to admit this treasure has been gathering dust (and rust) in our basement for 7 years! We just didn't know where to put it.
This spring I finally decided to unearth this beauty. I had wanted to paint it a grayish-white for quite some time, and that's what I did.
Here it is in our living room. We 'found' space by moving some furniture around a bit...
I put my daughter's old socks over the wheels to prevent the floor from scratching. That idea came from Cindy's home of CutePinkStuff. She did that with baby socks to her dining chairs - clever!
The living room has a fresh white summery look to it now...
The daybed is now my favorite spot to read books and doze...
I covered it with a monogrammed flea market sheet:
Reflection of the room and our garden peonies:
We removed the coffee table and put the ottoman in the center for a softer look:
Here's how the daybed looked after unearthing it:
And here it is painted and sealed:
Although it will probably just be around for the summer, I'm so happy to have brought this daybed back to the daylight.
I'll be sharing it with these fun link parties:
