I made a bench out of an old bed. I'd seen these before, but not in Julee colors! Here are before, during and after photos...
This is the finished bench. The colors remind me of a gypsy wagon. I toiled over the colors for a year and finally was inspired by the color on a plastic tumbler. I took it to the lumber yard and they matched the color.
This is the bed how I bought it from the thrift store for $35.00.
This is the bed with the footboard turned upside down and it fashioned into a bench before the painting started.
Got it all sanded and primed and still had no idea what color it was going to be.
First color. Deciding what should be what color was the fun part!
