Pennsylvania House Bed Transformed Into a Mystical Mantra Beauty

7 Materials
$50
4 Days
Medium

This piece has been a joy for me, using Debbie's DIY Golden ticket, it makes this piece pop! Makes me giddy! I've included tutorial videos to show the stencil, dry brush and waxing process. This piece is part of a three part series on youtube. And you can visit the blog for the entire gallery of posted pictures for this project.


Here is what I used on the entire project:


-I started with DIY paint colors, using Marquee, Hey Sailor, and Cowgirl Coral.

-Next, I used Debbie's DIY Golden Ticket on some of the larger medallions, then I used DIY paint colors: French Millinery, Cowgirl Coral, and Marquee on the smaller medallions.

-Dry brushed the Golden Ticket all over and for detailing.

-Then, I used hemp oil clear wax all over.


You could do this project in about 4-5 days. The dry time is what takes up the most time.

This project is rated medium as far as the "challenging" aspect.... as long as you know how to blend.

The main cost was stencils. But you can do it under 50.

I found this bed frame second hand, and saw a vision for it. Dull and dingy it was up for a change and I was up for the challenge....

The first video above shows the stenciling process.

      Hello Sar27331449, I'm not totally sure I understand your question. The wood headboard, footboard, and side rails came with a metal interior frame to attach them to. And then the box spring and mattress sit on the metal frame. Hopefully I answered your question, but if not, please feel free to list more details and hopefully I can help you out with more answers to your question. Warm regards, Refurbish in the Middle.

      Hi Barbara.... Thanks for your inquiry. not sure where you are getting the term "flotroll." Help me tune in to where you saw this in the post and maybe I can help clarify. Possibly was it in the video?

    Work looks great, the balance perfect. Only one question, why call it mantra, mantra in its own meaning, is a group of words or sounds that bring a purpose to the person chanting it. In Buddhism is call Shingon (china). Is this in reference to a set of assemblies? I am nuts about the philosophy of words.

      Thanks Mfahrenreich for reaching out, great question. There was no real intent to have a true definition when we made the heading...kind of in tune to a "Brand Mantra" that companies use, Mystical Mantra was the feeling that came to mind when looking at the peaceful design & positive vibes that the furniture piece seemed to portray. The golden accents gave it a "mystical" feeling. Mantra was only used as a whimsical connection with a decor concept in mind of a peaceful design print, positive energy and a boho feel.
