Good job! They came out great!

That bed is very similar to my bed that I bought 20 years ago! At first I thought it was the exact same one, but upon further looking I see that it is slightly different.

Here's a picture of it with a quilt I made on top:

If you take a good look you can see the T2T tables beside the bed. These were both trash-picked and in sorry shape. I primed them and painted them, added new drawer pulls to the one on the left and decoupaged 2 cut-outs on the front of the one on the right.

And here is a picture of a bench made from the lower section of a bunkbed about 4 years ago:

I love what you did with the night stands. Don't you love to make something old and ugly into something new and beautiful?

Wow! Doesn't color make the biggest difference in what a piece ends up looking like?

I love the color in particular you chose for the potting bench-- it just is so soothing and fresh.

Lovely transformations!

Love your projects!! I guess I need to do one of those potting benches, it looks like it would be great for organizing all those pots I have to store each winter.

I think we should call you super-sue instead of shy-sue! lol
