Mire Bedroom Set Refinish

Mire Bedroom Set Refinish

Happy Tuesday, Friends! We have a little something to share with all of you on this #TransformationTuesday! And when we say transformation, WE MEAN IT! We took an outdated oak bedroom set and gave it a Classy French Country feel that is sure to brighten, and open up its old space.

We recently completed a bedroom set refinish for the Mire family. Before we start, we just have to say that we love all of our clients; but Holly and Timmie were by far some of the easiest, most laid back clients that we have ever worked with. They basically dropped everything off to us, picked out their stain and paint colors, and said,”Do whatever you want, I trust you.” Now, that always makes me a little nervous, as I always want to make sure that we exceed our clients’ expectations by completing their pieces how THEY WANT. But Holly was 100% serious! She basically left the finishing up to Patrick and I! EEEPPP! 😉

Once we got everything stripped, sanded, and cleaned, we went with the paint color that Holly originally picked out…. Sherwin Williams Natural Linen. This color goes beautifully with their bed which is linen as well. As for the top, we went with a deep, dark, rich Kona stain, made by Varathane. The light Linen bases and dark Kona tops offer a nice contrast and bring a little “POP” to their space.

And as for the finish on the bases, Holly knew that she wanted some distressing, but asked that I would go ahead finish it the way I thought would look best. So, we decided to go with edging only. They don’t really have a specific theme in their bedroom, but after meeting this family, we really felt that a CLASSIC style would fit their space best. By distressing edging only, it still gives their pieces a totally new look without being overly rustic. It’s kind of like having the best of both worlds!

As for the hardware, the Mire’s decided it was time for an UPGRADE. They were missing some of the handles from their current set, and several others were not holding in place properly. So, we went on a search for some new handles and came across these beauties…

They were so PERFECT for this set, and were very reasonably priced. On top of the normally low price, they were an additional 50% online at Hobby Lobby where we were able to purchase all 25 at once! S-C-O-R-E!

Once we finished fully sealing all of our pieces, and adding our new hardware, this was our FINISHED PRODUCT
