Rice Bedroom Set

 Hey everyone hope you are able to stay cool in this very HOT summer.
Here is my project for the week.  Its a Rice Bed.....

These beds are really amazing and were very popular awhile back.  Unfortunately they are not as popular now as they once were.  I have painted at least 3.  They take a lot of time to paint and distress.  But they sure are pretty when they are done.

This one was done for a client.  She had the bed, then two night tables.  You can see one in the above picture and here is the other one. In its before state.

Painted my favorite off white. Crisp Linen from Sherwin Williams mixed at Home Depot in there Behr  Premium Plus Paint.

They were then distressed by hand because using a sander on the delicate design would ruin it. 
I then used just the clear wax on everything, except the tops of the nightstands those I used a Poly Acrylic on.

Another close up of the detail.

Have a great week everyone!

  1. First time reader this morning. I have enjoyed perusing your lovely blog over my morning coffee. OMG! I can't believe no one has commented on this post. This is EXACTLY what I want to do with my rice bed and nightstand and your post may have given me the inspiration and courage to move forward with my project. My bed is way too high and I haven't taken it apart yet to see if it can be lowered. Do you know anything about that?
