At an auction, as ususal, I bought this bed and matching nightstands.

I sanded the pieces but before painting, I did this special work to maintain the design of French frame the original piece had. I did it wiht wood icing (I think this is the name you give it in English).

I painted frame gold and the rest in a beige greenish colour. Then painted the centre white.

Distressed white paint so that the greenish colour below could also be seen in this part, so I was integrating both areas.

In the center, hand painted crown and text

And decoupaged some roses around

Created some shades with dark green patina

And an old pink patina on white parts. At the end used golden wax on the relief.

Followed the same steps on the nightstands.
