A Beautiful Update Full Size Bed Frame
I am working two pieces for a client of mine who has already bought several pieces, these will be the last custom pieces I finish before the move. I told her I couldn’t guarantee getting these done (with us moving and everything) but I have been able to work on them a little here and there so I was able to complete them!
This is a very nice sold wood full sized bed with wooden rails. It was in good shape with only a few minor repairs, but it certainly needed a facelift!
My client shows the colors (which make it super easy for me), she chose Annie Sloan’s Old White and Coco, a very pretty combination.
After cleaning the frame with Formula 409 I painted two coats of Old White then two coats of the Coco.
I distressed it slightly using 220 grit paper. I used an orbital sander, on low rotation, for the large areas and hand sanded the smaller areas.
After distressing I applied a coat of Annie Sloan’s clear wax with a cloth, rubbing it in good, then I let it sit overnight. The next day I buffed the bed with 0000 steel wool and then polished it with a soft cloth.
My client is going to use this in her guest bedroom and I think the color scheme is a lovely neutral which will coordinate with just about anything.
I’m also painting a chest of drawers for her to go in the same room. It’s super gorgeous and I cannot wait to share it with you!
Hope you like it and as always thanks for stopping by!
