I almost forgot to leave an update about my daughters bed!!!
A few months back i posted about an ugly bed my mom gave to us for my daughter
well i sanded and painted the thing and it looked much better...
here's the post:

Well I've turned this ugly bed frame
Into this beauty!! (still in progress)
I started by painting the whole frame a beautiful turquoise my daughter picked out
and that paint job alone made a huge difference!!
I then painted the 'rings' a metallic gold
and then i hand painted on peacocks and a lotus blossom
the peacocks are blue, green, purple and a bit of gold
( before the lotus blossom)
I also added a few swirls to the bottom board
next was the side boards ( hand painted as well)
after it was all put together
I still need to paint the headboard
there is still progress needed to be made in her room ( more pillows, canopy, new sheets etc)
please ignore under the bed..that's the extra mattress
 ( gonna cover it or make something to hide it , no where to store it)
the PVC pipes on the wall are waiting to become a book sling.
i just have to go to town and buy the fabric
she loves her new bed!!
I still need to make some new curtains also.
(these are actually her old flat sheet!!)

I am entering this in the CSI ( challenge
Wish me luck!!

PS I am entering this into another CSI Challenge
