This amazing, vintage bedroom set came from an estate sale. It is difficult to find full vintage sets of furniture and this one even came with a vanity, that you might remember from this post.
The bedroom set was in great condition with an orange wood finish before.
Above is the way the bed looked with just two coats of Paris Grey.
To soften the Paris Grey, I applied a wash of Coco Chalk Paint and water over it before waxing with clear wax.
I distressed the Old White trim and applied the Coco wash over the white too.
This bedroom set would be so pretty for a classic sisters' bedroom or guest room.
Here is the night stand before.
This bedroom set just has gorgeous detailing!
The dresser is nice and tall with five drawers.
Here it is with just Paris Grey. Notice the third drawer is missing a piece of trim on the left side. I measured the gap and looked online at woodworking sites, but could not seem to find a trim replacement. Looking through the online catalog, I got the idea to try some reed spline that is used on cane chairs to hold the caning in place. I measured the gap and ordered the spline, which only cost a couple of dollars for a whole roll. When it arrived, I cut it to the right length, applied some wood glue, and wedged it into the groove. It was a perfect fit!
I love the way the Coco wash softened the Paris Grey & Old White and aged them in a subtle way.
This bedroom set is a show-stopper now and gets lots of attention at Loot.
