It is all done, that’s right the bedroom set is finally complete. I refinished the stool base and dropped it off to Bill at B&T Upholstery with some really cool retro frieze fabric Mel and I picked up on Ebay.
Here it is before its transformation
B&T Upholstery did another great job!
It looks great!
As I mentioned in the title above I managed to refinish the Queen size headboard and foot board for our bed in the Heywood Wakefield champagne finish. I am trying to sell our other bed so I can put this bed up. Here are some pics of its resto:
The finish on this bed frame was not in the best shape so that I why I refinished it. This is a dog bone bed frame by Heywood Wakefield. I prefer it more than the Rio style bed frame.
Here is the frame all sanded down. I have refinished a lot of HW pieces but the old finish on this bed frame was on there like glue!
Here is the foot board after the first staining. It is amazing to watch the transformation between the coats. I put a total of 4 coats to achieve the final finish. Remember to check out Jeff on Ebay to pick up your stain, it is an easy process to refinish any piece.
As usual the finish is buttery and sooo rich looking. I can not wait for our current bed to sell so I can throw this one up!
Hey Shane, Really nice job on the restore and I love the fabric you guys picked out for the stool. I’d be kicking the old bed to the curb just to get this one in place!
I am tempted trust me. The bad thing is we spent $2000 on our current bed and we are selling it on Craigslist for $475…..no bites. I guess something will have to give.
Oh man, I just realized I had gotten rid of that EXACT VANITY like a YEAR ago, because I didn’t know what it was!! SO kicking myself!! LOVE your blog, though!!
That is such a bummer!
