WOW, I didn’t think this bedroom set would EVER get done. There were so many problems, I went through two paint guns, and had to purchase another one just to finish the job! Although I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out. I had done some staging for a lovely couple who was moving to North Carolina. They had this 1940’s bedroom set that they weren’t taking with them, and we made arrangements to have it Renewed Reloved. The bedroom set was in wonderful condition, it has really been taken care of over the years.
I love the original hardware on this set, and knew I was going to keep them untouched. Ok, so begins the sh*t show. I lightly sanded all the pieces so the paint would adhere nicely. I used colors that I had left over from painting my own house. I try not to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint if I can help it, no offense. I used “Mesa Verde Tan” for the outside, and the drawers were down in “White Down,” both by Benjamin Moore.
At first I painted the entire end table “White Down,” but I thought that it was just so boring, and didn’t do the set any justice. However, I liked the dark original hardware against the off white. I loved the “Mesa Verde Tan” that I used for my master bedroom, and thought it looked really good against the off white. So there you have it- a two tone set. So I set up shop, ready to paint. Little did I know that I would soon have a mental breakdown.
Honestly, every time I tried to attempt to paint this set somethings went wrong. Both my paint guns stopped working. Finally the new Wagner one I purchased did the job. It was a long battle, and a big under taking, but when all said and done I think it came out incredible (yes I am patting myself on the back, but shush). Check out the finished product. All of which can be seen and purchased at 23rd & Bird located inside the WinSmith Mill in Norwood, Ma.
