This beautiful bed frame was given a new look fit for royalty by Angie from The Painted Piano with Simplicity, Pocket Watch metallic cream, and Tough Coat!

My youngest daughter has always wanted a “golden” bed like her Grandma’s brass bed. While a brass bed didn’t exactly go with my design for her room, I had an idea. After scouring Craigslist for a couple months, I finally found a bed for her, and was eager to transform it into a “golden” bed.

The old iron bed was fairly chippy, and mostly a yellowing white. I sanded the rails down just enough to take down the edge of the chippy areas and smooth the surface.

After that, I gave the entire bed two coats of Country Chic Paint’s Simplicity. The result was a beautiful, crisp white. This bed just needed a fresh start!

After the white dried completely, I applied Country Chic Paint’s Metallic Cream in Pocket Watch to certain areas to give Chloe her “golden” bed. I used a sponge brush to get the gold into every detail. I used a small detail brush to apply the Metallic Cream to the edges of the gold areas.

After each coat dried, I applied another. I found it took multiple thin coats to get the opaque look I wanted.

An application of Tough Coat over the entire bed and Chloe’s Golden Bed was complete. And she couldn’t be happier!
