Toddler Bed

The before and after of Nixon's bed.

 Usually when I start a painting project, it takes me more than one day to complete it. Between taking care of the boys, cleaning and cooking...etc. I'm sure some of you can relate. I had the idea of using a empty formula container so that when I need to step away from the project I can just close the lid and the paint won't dry out.  It's also great for holding onto while painting the corners and edges of walls. 

Here's the finished bed. It's not perfect, but that's what I was going for. :)


While I was taking these pictures to post, Nixon jumps up onto the bed and says, "Cheese Mommy!" Haha it was so cute, I had to take a picture of him.  With his no shirt one sock and messy face! Love him<3

He loved his bed so much 
he had to give it a kiss!

I CAN TOTALLY RELATE. I really thought I would be done in a day or two with our toddler bed... I just finished the hard parts and I have one more coat on one more piece that will have to wait until tomorrow! Max is way excited for his new red bed. Anyway, yours looks great! Mine doesn't look great.. but it's a toddler bed and it is okay if it looks like an amateur painted it because, hey, I am an amateur at painting and I am proud of it :) Great job, glad he loves it!
