Josiah's big bed is finally in his room!!!!!! Hoorah! He is awaiting a doona cover which I plan on making before winter, a cotton waffle blanket will do for now. I would 'dearly' love this doona (duvet) cover. These sheets are pretty fabulous too but not the price, they cost more than the bed!
This is how Porter's Paint colour: 'Obsidian' came out on the bed - I would have preferred it slightly darker grey but it still looks great. I wasn't mentally prepared for the bed to sit so high off the ground?! Most vintage beds I have seen have the wire mesh base with the metal rails you can just see above in black. I am however thrilled with the result of my first ever complete furniture renovation!!
