Last week’s Favorite Find Monday has had its transformation in creamy white. It started as a standard pine bed.
After a few coats of creamy white it now has cottage charm!
Process: Two Coats Annie Sloan Old Ochre; sand to smooth; a wash of Annie Sloan Old White (see video below); sand with 200 grit to distress and smooth; one coat Annie Sloan Clear Wax.
Perfect, simple, but so soothing. Harper is adorable.

We must be on the same wavelength this week. I just finished two beds. The first in bright white but the second was this exact creamy white color. ?
I bet they look fantastic. Amazing what a coat of white can do lol! I’m on the lookout for a full size bed for my daughter that I’ll paint white. It will turn up eventually 🙂
The bed is so nice but Harper is darling
Nicely done Suzanne! I just love your dog 🙂 he is just so adorable in his helmet.
Thanks Annie! It’s a Build-a-Bear costume lol!
Love, love your work!! Where did you find that soft Redskins helmet for Harper? So adorable! I have two little dogs that could definitely use one.
Hi Kathy, I was cleaning out my teenage son’s bedroom closet and found his old Redskin’s Build-a-Bear! It is the teddy bear’s helmet lol! Thanks!
Beautiful as always. Harper is adorable!
Love the bed before and after (love Harper more. Just not his team).

I’m sure your client was thrilled with her painted headboard/foot board! The cottage white provides a beautiful clean back drop for beautiful linens and bedding.
Harper is cute as a button, I love the bed
Do you always do the wash in a lighter color? Would the effect be similar if you painted it in Old White first and then did a wash of Old Ocre? I’m guessing it would be a good bit darker, but would the “streaky” effect be similar?
Hi Beckie – you can do a darker wash over a lighter color or vice versa. It will create a totally different hue and will make it quite a bit darker if you do the Old Ochre as a wash over the Old White. The effect would be the same. I suggest trying it out first on a sample board and playing around with it before you do it on your piece. Good luck!
