I painted it for a repeat client.....and she asked for very specific design elements such as french script, specific colors, and nail head trim. I had no idea that her design and my painting would drive more traffic to my business than any other piece at that time. I was lucky enough to eventually locate four more of these beds through Craigslist adds. I haven't seen another in a very long time!
Its soft muted tones keep this piece elegant. However the imbalance of the stripes add a touch of whimsy....and keep it from being too serious. The addition of the dark nailhead trim really accents the detailed shape of both the headboard and footboard. The French script is unexpected....and adds even more interest to the piece.
I really do wish I had a warehouse full of this exact style bed...that I could paint any way I wanted to on a daily basis!! Don't overlook your headboard as an opportunity to add interest to your room. Especially a large headboard with a lot of open room for creating and painting! And hey...if you see any of these beds in your area....give me a shout! LOL!
