As I shared on instagram, it’s marathon painting week at Maison de Pax. We’ve primed and painted and painted and painted our laundry room (which sadly, yes, is a project we began months ago). Hopefully we can organize that space soon to share. In the meantime, we’ve also stained and whitewashed and painted our new attic space.
We are making final decisions on the flooring and hoping to lay that and finish trim this weekend. My favorite inspiration picture right now has similar whitewashed planks, deep brown floors, and beautiful white, vintage furniture.
Our current guest bed belonged to my husband’s grandparents. I refinished the bed several years ago, and it was a LOT of work. I loved that it was restored to its original glory…
And now I’m thinking I’m not a huge fan of that glory. 😉 I’d really like to paint it white. Probably use milk paint so it can have some beautiful chippy goodness… Maybe Miss Mustard Seed’s ironstone or grain sack.
But since it’s a lighter wood, I might need to darken it to have the contrast I’d like. Which means, of course, more work…
So here’s my question: should I paint the bed? And destroy all the hard work I put into it before? HELP!
