Tarred and Bettered
Jul 10, 2012
Janet's son was ready for a bit of an upgrade in the bedroom department, as he was still using the crib rail from his convertible crib as a headboard, and he's almost nine. As my ten-year-old son would say, "Mooo-ooooom! AWK-ward!" So she found the perfect full-sized bed on kijiji.com and painted it Black Tar by Benjamin Moore. Then she realized it was actually a queen. Woopsie. But it looked so gosh darned great, they decided to go with it anyway. I know I wouldn't complain! Getting a bigger mattress is like discovering a magical new world you only wish you had known about sooner.
