We decided to go with the Ikea Fjell bed for our Basement guest room, primarily because of its Coastal vibe with a planked wood head board and foot board.. I also loved the fact that it had 4 sliding drawers underneath for added storage.. which is hard to come by in a queen-size bed frame... The bed frame looked nice in the original colour of Black BUT the colour just didn't go with our decor or the look I wanted. SO with a lot of white paint and patience see how we transformed it...
Looking back I'm NOT SURE if I would do this again especially since it was a Full price purchase.. I have no problem turning something old to new or cheap to fabulous.. But I literally had to paint EVERY piece individually and then put it all together.. and still pay $500! :( But with that being said I am VERY VERY happy with the way it all finally turned out! Its just too bad it didn't already come in white!
We painted the wood with Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer.. Its great for all surfaces and covered the black frame with 2-3 coats.

Here is after we painted it all and put it together.. Mission Complete!
Love all my drawers.. They are huge.. They hold my extra decor in 2 of them, extra electrical supplies and BBQ Summer stuff in the others. The original hardware pulls really pop now that the bed frame is white.
