Dreams Come True: Create a French Bed with Efex

Sleeping Beauty
 Stunning antique French bed!   
Well....its really a vintage bed that has been recreated by
 Victoria using Maison Decor's Efex latex moldings!
 Victoria bought this shapely vintage bed that had some 
of the carved details she craved, but she wanted more...much more! 
 Victoria has created some amazing things for her home using her 
imagination and when I found her blog I was excited 
to sponsor her in recreating her bed.
She designed her ideal French bed by visiting my online shop
for Efex latex moldings and planned out what she needed.
We shipped it off to her, and this is what it looked like when
she pulled it out of the box. Not very impressive in baggies, right?
But just you wait!
Victoria painted her moldings first using Paris Grey Chalk Paint®.
 After that she applied them with painters tape on the bed frame
 to see what position she wanted.  Looks pretty amazing at this point!
Then she applied the contact cement to both the furniture and the 
back of the moldings and waited 20 minutes.  
After the timer went off, she simply pressed them 
into place and painted any areas of exposed glue.  
You can also apply them all first, then paint~its your choice.
Sweet dreams from a fancy French bed! 
One last look at this sleeping beauty.  
Visit Victoria's blog, Trois Petites Filles for this and other 
beautiful and inspiring projects.  
And don't think you need an elaborate project to use Efex appliques!
Our shop associate Cindy used one applique to 
transform a metal wall bucket.
Before, a rustic barn red color with no embellishments....
After~ still rustic but done in a pretty antiqued pale blue with a 
french accent from our Efex line makes for a very easy DIY project.
 You might remember that I just did a makeover on my mantel using Efex.  
Apparently HomeGoods liked it too! They shared it on their Instagram
 much to my surprise!  Follow along with me on 
Instagram at amymaisondecor where I show off inside action shots 
from the shop and my home.
