Miriam’s New Bed – Part II

February 10th, 2008 · by Cyndi · 2 Comments

This is a follow up to Part I from Dec, 2007. We got this bed frame for free from Freecycle and it was a mess. Massive scrubbing ensued. Then we varnished, but the coat done in the late afternoon bubbled due to the cold. It took nearly two months before we had a warm sunny day, on a day that Michael had off, when neither of us was sick. That day was yesterday.

We sanded the bubbly spots, washed off the dust, and re-varnished. It came out pretty good, as you can see. A few hours of ozone this morning then we put it all together. And now Miriam has a bed. All she needs is a mattress (we have a piece of foam, but it’s too narrow, too long, and too toxic).
