Oval Bedroom Mirror

Posted in Bedroom Furniture, Featured

Well, Angie and I have just started working on a little distressed furniture project in our bedroom.  We’re taking our time and just doing one piece here and there as time permits.

The walls of the room are a rich cranberry red so after looking through a bunch of colors we decided on (what I call) a Confederate gray.

These were all done using the dry brush method.  Click here to see our tutorial on how we do this:  Dry Brush Method Tutorial

Angie has already completed the first three pieces and we’re going to be sharing them in 3 posts now and in subsequent posts as we complete them.

Thanks for coming by.  Be sure to leave a comment and Share and PIN any pictures you like!

  1. having retired in the last 12 months I have taken up upholstery and so badly damaged my tendons have abandoned that!!! I have allways loved wood and interested in distressing a 1960’s coffee table i bought at a boot sale. loved the article on the chalk paint. The coffee table I have bought had tiles on which I have removed and have done a collage of all my wonderful family and friends from years gone by (and will but reinforced glass in it) and am getting down to the nitty gritty now. I have bought some moulding powder which I am told is the same as plaster of paris and I would like to know what LATEX PAINT IS. The man in the shop said it was just water based paint like emulsion but wanted to make sure before I start my project – I am the sort of person who when painting paints everythin that doesn’t move….regards anne

    • Hi Anne. Congrats on your retirement. I’m not sure if they have a different type of latex paint in the UK or if it is just called something else, but it’s basically a water-based paint with synthetic polymers that have characteristics similar to natural latex.
      We love it. It cleans up with water and comes off of non-porous surfaces very easy if you spill some.
      Here is a link to an article about latex paint that will explain more. Latex Paint

      Thanks for joining us Anne!
