Anyhoo, here are some inspiration pictures for the next makeover.
I have a similar metal bed that is spray painted an ugly bronze color, but I am loving the fresh look of this bed and side tables. I'm seeing a trend in my inspiration pictures. Notice the plank walls. Maybe they had cracked plaster walls, too.
I found this picture in Google Images and think it is the perfect solution to my old cupboard in Project 2012 bedroom featured below.
If only my home projects could be completed as quickly as they seem to be on those half hour HGTV makeover shows. I sure could use Sarah and crew from Sarah's House ( my all time favorite design show) AND their budget, too! Sigh, a girl can dream.
