Living in a subdivision makes dumpster diving so simple. ;) Just take a stroll before trash day and WALA...a youth bed for Jude. Now, some folks may have marked the find and returned later with a truck or something...but why wait when you can just drape it all over a double stroller and walk really slow? I didn't knock Jude out loading it or anything, eating that apple in hand must have wore him out.
The bed needs spruced up. Should I paint it pale yellow (I've got extra paint already) sand the rough spots and leave it the dark stain color so it's distressed...but not chewed on as it currently is, or paint it cream attempting a vintage painting on the headboard? all votes are welcome. I'll put a poll on the side to make it more simple to leave your choice.
