SUPPLY LIST



White Lightening (cleaner)

Boss (to prevent bleed through)

Gravel Road (base coat)

Caviar

Pacific and Silver Moonshine Metallics

Rust color (this was custom mixed but "Chocolate" would work well!)

Top coat of your choosing

Paintbrushes (I used Oval Medium "OM")

Nail heads

Pipe hardware



I started with a clean, repaired, and sanded piece. I applied the WoodUBend Mouldings where I felt they looked best (click here to see how), coated with Boss to prevent bleed through, then put two coats of Gravel Road down as my base. You may also notice I added nail heads to the frame. This step is optional but in my case, felt necessary to get the industrial vibe I was going for. The studs were the coup de grace, so to speak.



Prep is necessary, but let's face it - boring! Are you ready for the fun part? Here you go!
