Hi everyone and thanks for joining Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday and Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Bargain sale finds . I have been away from the computer trying to finish a room I started a couple of months ago. I am also busy with a wedding planning job I acquired a while back. Life sometimes gets in the way of progress. I recently acquired from a friend this daybed to be put into my daughter's room and make into an office/guest room. The daybed I felt would fit well in the room and take up less space than a full size bed.
I did not like the white and brass look however for my purposes, so I decided to change the color and style. This is the daybed before. Very country and cute. It went well in the room and home it was in.I decided to update the iron and finials to fit the decor in my home which is Italian/Mediterranean country. So I went to Home Depot, of course and started with two cans of espresso color spray paint. After I was done with that I still was not happy with the color choice.
So back to Home Depot, and Michael's to find a Bronze spray paint and a Copper Spray paint. I started to mottle the sprays together to give me a patina of bronze and copper over the dark brown. It gives a lustre to the plain brown paint. It is hard to see the colors in the picture but it works, especially with the new finials I found at Calico Corners for 50% off for two.
In this photo you can see the bronze and copper patina a little better.
I hope you enjoyed my transformation so far. Now if I can just find some bedding! I'll just keep looking. Keep your eyes looking for me also. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and Rhoda at Southern Hospitality
