Distressed Gray Antique Painted Bedroom Suite

I love it when I get the whole story behind the pieces I paint.  Mom’s bed, that was passed down to her through her family, came to me needing love.  The mom has 3 boys and the oldest was going away to college shortly.  I was redoing her bed she had when she was a child for her oldest son.  The beautiful antique white finish {a painted piece already…} was chipping and flaking and I was going to make it a masculine beauty!! I was excited.  I never get to do masculine finishes!!  So I was excited to do distressed grey painted furniture for a young man!!

Here is the inspiration…  Distressed Grey Painted Furniture From One King’s Lane.  Kenton Nightstand in Distressed Ash Gray.

I’ll let you see the pieces, I loved how they turned out and so did she!!

It was a good night to deliver and bring a mama who just left her son away at college a bright smile!!

I think you will just love the layers of color that created this fabulous distressed gray finish.
