Pennsylvania House Bed Transformed Into a Mystical Mantra Beauty

7 Materials
4 Days

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.

Transformed into a feeling of luxury and style with the gold accents.

It's getting there with the addition of golden ticket accents!

The third video tutorial goes over the Hemp oil wax process for the finish!

Couldn't you see yourself laying on the bed and sky gazing?

The sun is dancing upon the gold!

Radiating positive vibes and staged under the sky!

      I love this idea. Recycle but beautiful. Need to find a full size bed.

    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.

    You didn't include stencils on your supply list. Where might one find those and are they costly?
