Twin transformation

I love the way these old twin headboards have been transformed with a some paint and a little fabric into this gorgeous daybed. I'm not much of a DIYer but maybe with my mom's help (hint hint) I could do something like this.

The thing about projects like these is that I think I could totally do it but I don't have any tools or tool knowledge to do it. I think maybe I should take some sort of class has anyone else out there taken a shop class as an adult?

See that's where I get into some trouble as fabulous as my guy is...building things isn't one of his best.

of course you can do this! get out the paint brush and go to town. Does the bed have the rails? I found an old sleigh bed and painted it white for Ruby's room, it's not as cute as that green bed, but it does the trick!

Fifi - I love the bed, but that little pooch is icing on the cake!
