After restoring the closet, the bed was next on the agenda. Looking at it was a scary experience, because of all the cracks on it that had to be filled in and sanded (so sanding, all over again). Everyone who did restorations knows that sanding is the most tiring process of it all. Especially if you’re ‘old’ school – scrub on, scrub off. Seriously, you spend a lot of sand paper. However, when you see the result after all your moaning, panting and swearing, it’s awesome. And a good therapy, too. Because of all the swearing. :-) So, it took us eight days to finish the bed. We were not lazy. It was 40 degrees outside (we measure it in Celsius, that is about 104 degrees Fahrenheit) and we were dying. The smell of paint would just intensify the ‘enjoyment’ so we did everything at a slower pace.

This is what we ended up with.

There is this 'paw' again. The same as one on the closet.

I've finished ironing and was in the middle of vacuuming, when I decided to take these pictures. Unfortunately, I did not take the ‘before’ pictures, but you can get the idea what the bed looked like if you see the ‘before’ pictures of the closet door.
