What should I do with this bed?
I got it at the salvation army..cheap.Low double digits. I even got money off because I pointed out to the manager it doesn't have side rails. It was filthy, but I was looking for a piece to paint white then glaze for my daughters "shabby chic" bedroom.
Now problem, I started working on it and it cleaned up pretty good.....too dang good to paint white. So now I must choose...either refinish it make side rails and sell it, refinish it , keep it , or bite the bullet and paint it now that I have already painted all the other pieces that are going into that room . Also does anyone have an idea how old it would be? I beleive it is walnut. The foot board has the same matchbook veneer on the facing part and the legs have ornately carved claw feet
