I fell in love with this set at an estate sale earlier this summer
I typically don’t go after beds (I think the best way to showcase a bed is assembled, and I have no room in my store for that) but I loved this bed for its footboard – pretty but not something that will get in the way –
My last silver finished vanity sold, and I’d had my eyes peeled for another, so I decided to do this whole suite in my favorite silver finish. I base coated the furniture using Caromal’s Reclaim Mocha, and then applied a blend of silver metallics (I like to mix multiple colors together) –
The tops I based with Caromal’s Textured Basecoat Chocolate, then added several layers of American Paint colors – not 100% sure what I combo’d on these, I ‘d guess Wild Horses, Leather Boots and Rushmore –
I antiqued the silver finish using Caromal Colour’s Toner, brushed it on and softened it back –
All the original hardware was cleaned, and followed the same process – base, finish, glaze – and lastly I topcoated them with a Wipe-On Poly–
I sanded back the tops, applied a coat of APC’s Topcoat Finish, and then softened them up with a glaze-
I love when it comes time to put everything back together again –
because then it means I can add some sparklies…
Aren’t these feet grand?
Perfect place to stage pillows, a little mini bed setup 🙂
One of my favorite all-time finishes, wonder if I’ll ever tire of it?
