New Life for an Antique Bed

One of my dear customers, bought this bed and dresser, at the shop, for her daughter, before I could paint it.


This was one of our most challenging projects. These pieces had been neglected for some time. Mr. Wonderful worked his magic on the bed and Patti and I took it from there.

This filler was our magic ingredient. It’s super easy to work with. It takes sanding and paint beautifully.

A soft pink chalk-based paint, was the customer’s color choice and I used a cream colored paint, mixed with clear wax, to highlight the molding.

The new owners stopped by the shop today, to see their baby and were very happy with the new look!

Hopefully, it will serve as a sweet dream factory for another hundred years! Next…the dresser!
