White Bed Frame

I haven't done any Before and After furniture projects lately. Unfortunately I only have the "after" on this one.
This bed frame was a street find.
An ugly street find. Even though the frame is wood, it looked like plastic, with a faded yellow speckled paint job. And the fabric was an even uglier 1980's mauve satin. I really with I had a before photo.
The frame received a flat white paint job.
I found this silvery/gray velvet upholstery fabric as a remnant, for only $1. There was barely enough to work with, but I was able to make it fit.
After replacing the foam, I stapled the new fabric to the frame, then used white fabric trim to cover up the staples. And there you have it, a new bed frame.
