Before and After :: Purplish Jenny Lind Bed

The cutie vintage Jenny Lind spool bed is finished!  Picking the color was the hardest part.  I wanted to use a color I haven't before, but found that purple is a really hard color to work with.  So many shades and tints and undertones!


Plus, the rich color of the unfinished wood was so beautiful I contemplated not painting it at all.  Buuut, that's not what a do - it had to be painted.



The deeper tones in the light, pinkish purple flowers from this post were my inspiration for the shade.



And it's available!  Email me for pricing: nattycox@gmail.com.

  8. It turned out perfect. What little girl doesn't love purple. I wasn't blessed with a girl, but if I did have one her room would have been pink and purple! Lovely job.
