Ten Projects, Day Six – A Sumptuous Silver Suite

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 –
