I have two of these beds and am using Annie Sloan chalk paint in Country Grey. I'm doing one at a time so I can figure out exactly what I want to do to them. I figure if I do one at a time it will be much easier and quicker to do the second one once I know exactly how I want it to look.
That one has two coats of paint on it and I'm about to play around with dark and clear wax. The dark wax will give it a weathered look and I guess that would be a good thing in order to hide future knicks but I'm not sure how to go about it just yet. I like the way it looks on some things but sometimes...the shabby chic look can be a bit too shabby to me you know? So...that's my dilemma.
I'd like to highlight the details on the beds.
What do YOU think? Distress the details only or try and lightly distress the entire bed? Do you like the color I picked? Remember...they are going in a navy blue bedroom that I want to make gender neutral.
I've been buying old flag decor and keeping it all together with the receipts in case I change my mind because I saw something recently that REALLY caught my eye that incorporated the color orange in the decor of a navy room. Nice right?
What would YOU do? Holla atcha girl.
