Hip Deep

So I’m hip deep in paint, varnish and silver leaf. I’m doing a master bedroom re-do. Remember the picture….

Yep, that one… Welp, I’m working on making our bedroom look mostly like this, or at least my vision of this. I’ve already got the duvet  cover in place. To knock off the mirrored furniture I’m using silver leaf on the drawers  of the night stands and the dresser, after painting them a rich brown color. I have the material to do the pillows and the throw. I just love Joann’s! Also I’m subbing the chase lounge (which I’d love to have) with an all ready owned rocker, that I’m gonna paint and recover in…..  fur. The Mr. is making me the bed… I feel like that show on HGTV, where the hostess knocks off a designer look for tons less. Now all that’s left is the lamps… umm… I’m thinking a trip to Goodwill is on my agenda, Oh, and curtains! Can’t forget the curtains!!

And I’m not doing the wallpaper… paint and stencils, that I found on-line, If y’all need big stencils, OMGstencils has some amazing stencils!!  Jimmy Black the owner will do customs! (Nope, he doesn’t know me from Adam… but the stencils are so cool and they got here so quick he deserves  the plug!)

So this is what I started with…. minus the drawers, I’ve noticed 98 was a good year for buying furniture. 😉

Silver leafing is really messy. But it’s pretty easy after you get the hang of it. Tutorial later? maybe for the dresser drawers.

Done with the leafing…. wait, it gets better.

After a coat of varnish, all the lines and such just disappear.

Waiting for the second coat to dry, hit it with some steel wool, and back to bedroom with these!

I’m hoping to get started on the sewing part of this project today, (keep your fingers crossed) cuz it’s also laundry day! And I should probably clean house… But ya know it won’t take long to knock out the sewing portion of this project, (she says hopefully). So I guess it’s time to wrap this up and get started.

 

Till next time… XOXO
