I'm going to paint it cream as well to match my husband's night stand and we can also use it when we have people over for large dinners because when it turns into a game table 4 people can sit at it. I love double duty furniture.
I also need to figure something out about a headboard. I am debating on stenciling something on the wall or getting a wrought iron style bed. I just don't know. I also love upholstered head boards. I may just go that route. Guess I'll see in a few months when it comes down to getting our room finished.
