So I'm currently in limbo of moving. I'm waiting to hear on some visa's to move internationally so in the meantime I moved back in with my mom. We did a whole clear out house, and she had offered to buy me a new bed set. Granted, new is nice, seeing as how I wont be living with her for more than a few months it seemed unnecessary. She had this very old battered bed-frame (purchased in the 40's) from my Great-Grandmother. This thing has been a hand me down for so many years, and she had contemplated trashing it. Instead of the trash, to my bedroom it went! It still works just fine, and given it's sentimental value, I figure we could spruce it up and save some cash while we're at it. Hope you all enjoy!

Tools: Paint brush, tarp, black and white Olympic Latex semigloss paint (although I wouldn't recommend it really as far as lasting durability)

Before (I forgot to take a picture of the top bit of the frame, but it looked exactly the same as the bottom frame):

I'm a huge fan of the Kraken/Octopus and I love compasses so I took the idea from a tattoo I had designed/done for me last year (artwork by Steve Lowery at http://transcendingflesh.com/).

Anyway, here's the final result of the frame!

(That's Cloud Strife on the bed enjoying it!)
