Coming out of a 2 year hiatus from commission works to create these bespoke hand painted bedsides for an old client of ours.
Inspired by our clients story behind this commission project. We came up with this creative concept for her bedsides to signify a moment in time. A concept to signify strength, femininity, empowerment, resilience and elegance.
These beautifully rustic metallic bedsides, have been sympathetically revived with bright pops of underlying colours, an old worldly raised stone stencilling, hand created textures, cracks and chips all encased in Artisan metallics. So imperfectly perfect, rustic yet elegant with a strong presence. A captivating artful revival, these hand painted and created bedsides will elevate and set the tone in the bedroom, a feature set that will naturally draw the eye towards them, adjusting constantly with the reflective gold finish. An absolute honour to have these travel over 200km to have to have us work on them.
Furniture surrounds us all the time and sometimes it's wonderful to be able to create a piece either in tribute, to signify a change, mark a moment or new beginning. adding another layer of sentimental value to the piece. We all need to surround ourselves more with things that we love and have meaning.
What we did:
Raised stencilling with Artisan Stone Effects in Rustic Rye. To see how simple this is to do click here
Painted in Wendy's Pink Premium Chalk Paint, loading on thickly and moving in all directions with a Staalmeester series 2020 brush.
Dry brushed in the following colours: Toulouse, Purple Sash, Firefly,
(To dry brush pick up a small amount of Premium Chalk Paint, and dab most of it off on a rag... your brush should almost be dry with colour on the tips, then sweep it over in areas over Wendy's Pink, creating patches and overlaying colours together)
Indie metallic gold brushed over in areas but allowing the colours to show through, sweeping over the textures. Milan Moonshadow metallic as a low light detailed over in areas around the handles and on the handles themselves.
Distressed edges with 240 grit as soon as the metallics were touch dry but still soft
