FREE FOOTAGE

My room is gradually coming together. My bed is no longer in the living room.

I took this old set of waterbed drawers….

And sanded and stained them a little and put them under my bed…

But my bed looked a little plain.

It needed a footboard. So out I went to my pile of free doors and found a set of bi-fold ones. Did you know that the height of closet doors is the same as the width of a king size bed?

Remember all those ends and sides I cut off the other doors?

I used them to frame the bi-folds and ta-da… a footboard…

Just a little too plain for me so I cut up some more ends and sides…

I sanded and painted…

Looks nice but I wanted a more aged look so I sanded and stained it a little…

Much better….

I’m tired, I think I’ll go soak in the tub…

I love the waterbed drawers. They make such great storage. Your bed turned out great. Love the footboard. The little fella in the tub is my favorite picture though. He's a keeper for sure. Love the chubby little legs.

I just got rid of an old water bed with those drawers. What a great idea. You need your own HGTV show.
Now that little soaker. Oh my gosh, that baby is adorable.
