We LOVE an ornate headboard!
We purchased this beautiful hand carved antique (you should have seen the footboard!) with the intention of painting it to sell in the shop but before we could do much to it aside from base-coat it, a client walked in who had to have it for her new home in South Florida. We quickly switched gears and created a custom heirloom she will treasure!
The base coat is a mix of Napoleonic Blue, Pure White, and Antoinette. We then dry brushed heavily with Louis Blue then used White Wax to finish. We love how Annie Sloan White Wax rests heavy in the low details giving such dimension to the blue hues. Such a stunning combo!
The client wanted ivory linen – tufted as in the original design – trimmed with nickel nail heads. Tres Chic!
