Like I mentioned in my last post, I am in the process of refinishing our bed-frame, and holy cow it is way harder than I thought it would be. This bed-frame has been in my family for YEARS; seriously it is probably older than both of my parents. It was my Mom's bed when she was young, and since then it has traveled to different family members. I acquired it shortly after my uncle moved to Austin from Brownsville, and it was in terrible shape.
My step-cousins almost ruined it; they left drinks on the headboard which left zillions of rings, they carved their names into it, and they even stuck gum all over the back of it. As you can imagine, I definitely have a ton of work ahead of me.
I'll post more when I find my camera in the mountain of boxes. I definitely regret packing it :(
