Oversized Bedroom Set – New Black

Large orders like this always make me a little nervous. This customer wanted me to repaint an enormous king size bed, a huge dresser and two oversized nightstands.

They were super high-quality pieces by Lexington, over 20 years old. I usually do pick-ups and deliveries in my own town, but these pieces were so big, she had to hire movers to do the job, and even for them it was really tough.

My garage was completely taken over for a week, with all the prepping, painting and drying of these giants. It was hard work, but so rewarding! Black was her color choice, and if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know exactly what is my go to when my customers ask for black. Valspar Furniture Paint “New Black”. I’m still totally in love with that stuff. It never disappoints me.

I obviously used my paint sprayer to tackle this monster job, and I took the opportunity to write my latest tutorial for Grillo-Designs Website on how to use a paint sprayer. It is pretty informative, so if you want to learn how I do it, you should check it out. Don’t forget to watch the video tutorial!

Here are the pictures of the finished pieces. Don’t you love this black? I never get tired of it.















Thanks for reading!

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
