Ever since I was a kid, red has been my favorite color. And any chance I have to refinish a piece in red, my excitement level rises in anticipation of the finished product.
Take this antique four poster bed for example!
I wish I had a before photo for this bed, but a customer snatched up this piece before I had a chance to take it. For her custom order, she chose Barn Red with Black glaze, wanting the bed lightly distressed. It would be for a guest bedroom, and I loved her decision to go bold!
When refinished with paint, old furniture like this bed starts to take on a whole new life. When glazed, the craftsmanship, detail and normal wear on a piece are accentuated, taking the piece to a whole new level of character and charm.
