Ultimate Guide to Bedroom Decorating and Design
1 Sleigh Bed, 3 Ways
At a local unfinished furniture store, we found a well-made sleigh bed just begging for a makeover.
Soft and Natural How-To
First, prime and paint the bed as desired, and let dry overnight. Find six botanical prints in an art book; color-copy the images to keep the original prints intact, and enlarge or reduce to fit the raised portion of each panel. (Note: If an illustration's copyright has expired, you may copy the image. Consult the U.S. Copyright Office to determine if a work is copyrighted.) We tore the images' edges so they had an imperfect finish.
Stir together equal parts glue and water in a dish. (The mixture should have egg-yolk consistency.) Use a sponge brush to coat both sides of each print; carefully apply the prints to the panels.
