Free Ultimate Furniture Painting Guide

Renaissance Painted Headboard

Ever wondered how you get that old... worn... rich... leathery look?  You know...where EVERY wrinkle, EVERY crease, was put in all the right places to create the feel of a well-traveled leather steam trunk of yesteryear!  Then to top it all BLACK???

Thats exACTly what Tracey has done with this "Renaissance" inspired Queen bed.  It didn't hurt that we found this bed already naturally weathered, and well-worn.

I have to admit, watching Tracey on this one made me a bit nervous! A beautiful Heirloom Traditions Paint  in Black Bean, then sanded to THIS!!! Look what she did...YIKES!

Tracey reassured me, "No worries, Julie.  This is where people 'freak out' a little!"

Once everything got a good sanding, it was time to "restore" and bring out the richness of the wood.

The entire bed was rubbed down with Heirloom Traditions Soft Wax in Jet Black then wiped with a soft, damp cloth until the desired depth is achieved.

From the outline of the gold down to the carved epaulets on the legs, this Queen Bed commands attention!
