New Project

Brad found this log bed on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago. I went to look at it and it was in pretty good condition, it was the lighter log color and it had a few pen marks and scratches, but other than that it looked nice. So we decided to get it. We got the bed, the mattress and box springs, and the bedding (not what you see here) all for $75! I wanted to get a before picture, but thought about it too late so you just get the after. We went to Home Depot and got a deep mahogany minwax stain which requires little prep work. Brad went to work sanding it down, applied 2 coats of the stain, and this is what we got!

We're really happy with the way it turned out, now we want to stain our dresser and night stand to match it. (And we really need a bed skirt, my mom made our quilt and we have been using it since we've been married.)

i love log beds. so homie and just make you wish it would be rainy and snowy so you can cuddle in bed? No? just me? I don't have one but IF i were as lucky as you, that's what i would wish for. It looks great! I really like your bedspread too. I think it goes with the new bed! Or i shouuld say the new bed goes with IT,he clearly has seniority. OH my random comments sorry. Must be "halloween" in the air, makes us all a bit crazy. NO?

Very cute. I think the quilt goes along with the log bed very nicely. Maybe your mom will make you a bed skirt to match for Christmas??? I love Craigslist =)
