Vintage Ethan Allen Twin Bed Frame...

Since we had some of the Thundercloud Gray (Benjamin Moore) paint left, we decided that this vintage bed frame would be perfect for it.



The bed frame is by Ethan Allen. It was from their Custom Room Plan Furniture and the color was Daffodil. She was in need of an update.

Here's how she turned out...




We were missing one of the caps for the posts...


So, I went to Hobby Lobby and found four of these great little hardware knobs and placed them on top of the posts. My husband does NOT like them at all. I think they look really cute... like little knobs at the end of a curtain rod. I even like the contrast of color. They are a  mixture of creamy white and white-washed wood giving it a gold hue. So pretty to me, I'm sticking with them! However, I do realize not everyone will appreciate them. My husband's exact words were: "it looks like you stuck four little rotten pumpkins up there."



 I picture her with some crisp white linens to complete the look!
I love how this piece turned out... rotten pumpkins and all. :)

You can see the vintage dresser that was painted this same color  here.
I think they would make a great pair for a little girl's bedroom.

  6. I love the little knobs on top! I think they add that little extra that makes the piece unique but still keeps it looking very natural. Beautiful!
