Furniture Renovation: Children's Bed

Here is my undercoat done!  Yes I was lazy and painted straight over the hardware without removing it!  Naughty me.  I invested in a small mohair roller, a small paint tray, a pointy brush for getting into the hard places and some VOC free undercoat.  You can barely smell a thing!  This is the original if you missed it.  I'm trying the tester pot paint today on somewhere inconspicuous the colour is Obsidian from Porters Paints.  It looked a little more grey/blue on the sample card...
I am really enjoying this whole process!  I'm glad the bed was only $20 though as it all adds up - you really want to make sure it is a project worth investing time and money into.   Hope you had a great weekend.
