What's our secret formula?

Posted October 26th, 2014

We spent weeks playing with sandpaper and wire brushes to get our amazing new scuffed grey paint finish just right (as modelled above by our Coco bed and Mimi bedside table). The hard bit was achieving the lovely beaten-up effect on the bronze handles and knobs. Here's the (not so) secret formula:

1. Chuck the bronze versions into a large bucket
2. Sandblast the life out of them
3. Give them a good shake
4. Paint lightly with our French Grey paint
5. Shake in a cloth bag and gently bash against the wall
6. Give them a quick coat of matte lacquer and they're good to go!

Phew! After all that, is it any wonder they look fantastic?
