I finished up this antique wrap around bed a couple days ago and think it turned out so cute! I would love to have this is in my little girls room, but sadly her bed is a queen and this one is a full.
I think its the sweetest bed and would be perfect in a room filled with white furniture and white ruffly bedding filled with vintage pillows – wouldnt it be fun to paint a room full of furniture, add in bedding and decor and then sell it as a whole set…. :)
Anyways, i got this bed a few years ago and worked on it at one point but then got busy with other projects and never finished it up.
I finally painted it about a year ago with plans to get it finished, but once again got busy with other painting projects and it sat painted for about a year. At the time i remember painting it with an oops paint that i picked up from lowes.
So finally, a few days ago i pulled it out to get it finished up. I didnt repaint it from being painted a year ago, i just distressed it. To distress this one i took my orbital sander to it, talked about doing that here.
After distressing, i glazed it using the method that i talked about here. The last step was to clear coat.
And the after…
Love the cute little applique details…
Love that the glaze brings out all the details..
Paint color – i dont know the exact color since i bought a $5 mistint, but it closely matches Ben Moore Warm Springs (the glaze changes the color a lot so beware)
Glaze – SW VanDyke Brown, posted about here
Clear coat – Varathane water based poly in a gloss
