Todays project was a requested piece by a friend of mine. She’s had this black headboard for years and was really ready for something more bright and fun. There is something I just really love about bright yellow headboards. They can make any room just come alive. So I was really excited when she wanted to paint this piece in VS Chalk Based Paint in Candlelight.
The headboard was in great shape, and honestly didn’t “need” to be repainted – but if you just want an update, what a better way to do it than with paint.
In addition to a new paint job, we also decided to a light white washing with VS Antiquing Powder in White Cashmere. This is a really fun product to white wash with. I wanted to wash to be pretty subtle – so I used a light hand and mineral spirits to remove the excess. I have a video tutorial coming out next week on how I did the white washing, but the wash lightened & softened the color a bit, while providing that little extra something to make the details pop!
What do you think? Do you like the combination of White Cashmere and Candlelight?
