I have been busy in the garage finishing up a project for ME!!! I made a Farmhouse Queen Bed, using plans (I slightly modified) by Ana White, and a nice big bookcase, using plans I created myself. Doug and I have had the same bedroom furniture for 32 years!! So now that we have a new bed, bookcase and bench I plan to refinish our chest and dresser - more on that later! Here are some pictures of the new look!
I put the bench I made at the bottom of the bed. More on that here.
The bookcase is made of 8, 2 x 6 x 8 boards and 1, 2 x 4 x 8 board with plywood on the back.
On all the painted areas I used one coat of Benjamin Moore Pikes Peak Gray and then sanded it to expose some of the wood.
I then rubbed on a light coat of Minwax Oil Based Early American Stain.
The stained areas have two coats of the Early American stain.
Everything is finished with two coats of Minwax Polycrylic.
Thanks for stopping by!
