Creating an Abstract Finish on Traditional Bedsides

Creating an Abstract Finish on Traditional Bedsides


These abstract bedsides were created using an inspiration artwork from my commission client, The artwork was to be displayed above the bed and she wanted a similar look for the accompanying furniture.

Firstly I used 2 coats of Manatee Grey by Dixie Belle Paint Company, I followed up by using a Dixie Mud scraper to apply Gravel Road, Driftwood & Fluff. This was the basis for the abstract style but was a little harsh, in order to soften I used more of the Manatee Grey and Driftwood with an artists brush for more accurate placement and used a water mister to target where I wanted the paint to drip, I mopped up  with paper towel any drips I didn't like.

The bright pink is CUREiously Pink from Fusion Mineral Paint as its the most intense bright pink in my stash. I applied again with an artist brush and used the water mister to give it more of an ink splat look. I used lots of Decor Wax by Redesign with Prima in Vega & Shiny Stars, again I used my scraper to apply to give a more interesting texture and appearance.

I used Dixie Belle Easy Peasy Spray Wax on the bodies and drawer fronts and Gator Hide for the tops. The handles were cleaned and Sprayed with Pewter spray paint and I hit the highpoint with Shiny Stars Decor wax to highlight.
