Matching Antique Twin Beds

Thursday, 23 August 2012

It was truly love at first sight when I Shayne brought me these matching twin beds. I mean, if you don't love the design of these, get your head checked. Just kidding...but really, don't you love the style?





Dying yet? Sit tight...they are about to get even better.

Shayne sent me this picture as inspiration for the finish and said she wanted the beds "Crusty" looking.


Before I started painting, I took a paint pen by Krylon in gold leaf to go over the pretty details, so that when I distressed the finish, the gold would peak through.


Then I mixed up some DIY chalk paint in a color similar to the inspiration but a bit more blue. I painted 2 coats and then had a lot of fun distressing! I used Jacobean stain to glaze, here is how they ended up. I love my king bed, but if I had room in my guest room for these babies, I'd buy them from Shayne!! Forgive my lack of staging...the hubs was not going to help me haul these inside ;)











These have been a labor of love, but worth every minute. Hope you love them too!
