The absolute most important thing after finally finding great old iron beds you’re happy with, is to select a custom antique faux’ finish that is really going to bring your bed to life.
One of the more attractive elements to owning an antique bed is their flexibility in being able to be painted and refinishied to blend with any setting…..new, modern , Victorian, Craftsman, Country Farmhouse/ Ranch Style. Your bed can look newer, older, more distressed or less, masculine or feminine etc. etc.
Some people are looking for their bed to be the most prominent piece of furniture in the bedroom. Others are looking for them to fade into the woodwork. Hence the beauty of the countless finishes that can help achieve all the subtle looks you want.
Darker finishes can help your bed to achieve a more formal look and a more masculine feel. Whereas painting your it with a lighter white finish, you’ll be able to get more of a softer feminine appearance.
By detailing the casting in a different color or doing a “Two Tone color combination, you can give your bed a much more childlike look. Even within the confines or childrens beds, gender distinction is quite easy. More primary colors will look better on your sons bed and pastels or white shades are going to be more appropriate for you daughters .
