Antique Twin Rococco Bed with Stained Wooden base accented with Dusty Pink and Gold Gilded Details

By Virginia Aiello, Co-Owner and Furniture Designer at Two Old Souls in Wake Forest, NC.

This stunning antique twin bed received a whole new look with a restained wooden headboard. The rich, dark wood was stained with Nutmeg Gel stain and protected with satin Arm-R-Seal.  The headboard edges, footboard and side rails were dressed in a coat on dusty pink paint then washed in a coat of warm, pale brown that settled into all the details, adding depth and richness.  After light distressing and varnish protection, edges and mouldings were swept with gold gilding wax, making this piece fit for Princess
