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

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!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
