Tarred and Bettered

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.
See more details on her blog House Four, including an mini-photography lesson.  Good stuff.
