How to Create a Boho Bed

I’d like to introduce this colorful bed as the “MOST COLORFUL” bed that I’ve ever created….but it’s not! I actually painted an ornately carved french bed into a LION….LOL! Yep…customer’s request….maybe I’ll share it with you one day!

This Yellow Boho Gypsy bed is layered with so much color and goodness…..that it just makes me happy to be in the same room with it!

YouTube Videos

I created much of this piece in a three part YouTube video. Check them out if you are the type that likes to see the actual process such as paint layering, painting stripes and applying the floral transfers.

First Steps:

The bed was cleaned with White Lightning, prepped with BOSS in Clear and base coated with Colonel Mustard. I then created the stripes with Rebel Yellow OVER the Colonel Mustard.

The bold colors were added in my typical color washing fashion……and I just love this drippy organic movement!

I used several new colors from the exclusive Flea Market Decor line that Dixie Belle is currently offering.

I used the Flea Market Decor Reclaimed Barn Red and Patina Green….as well as the traditional DB Peacock.

I think the colors on the sides of the foot board work together like jewel tones and add a dramatic flair!

I know she’s bold! And I realize the look is not for everyone! But my social media followers are calling her the “happy bed”….so who wouldn’t want to wake up in that bed everyday?!

Instagram post 17956354792291177 Hey you all! Dixie Belle has handed me the keys to their Instagram 💃💃💃! So for the next couple days I’m going to be sharing my favorite furniture makeovers and tips with you ❤️. I’m going to take a moment to introduce myself! I’m Leah of @leahnoelldesignco and I’m blessed to be on the Dixie Belle Brand team! I love painting furniture in multiple different styles. I get bored easy so I like to change it up a lot! 
I started Leah Noell Design Co out of my love for the quality that antique, vintage, and hand crafted furniture offers. Growing up my parents furnished our home with antique furniture. So naturally when I got my own home I decided that I would only buy brand spanking new furniture!! 😤....Until 3/4 years later did that brand new from the store furniture fall apart. While my parents (you know that were so primitive having antiques 😉) still had the same furniture in their home for 30+ years. 
That’s where my passion stemmed from! My mission is to show you that you can have great quality furniture with a design / paint finish that you love!! You can really brighten up any space in your house with a little bit of paint and an imagination! 
Here’s the thing....I love to paint. I love to share. I love to promote and stand with other entrepreneurs that work with their hands and hearts to share their craft with the world. It’s my passion to bring you quality furniture or just inspiration to do your own! Whichever is more you, a DIYer or a buyer, I’m happy you’re here!! In celebration of this takeover I will be giving away $100 worth of Dixie Belle Paint! Head over to the @leahnoelldesignco For details 💙. #colormovement #dixiebellepaint #chalkpaintedfurniture #artisanhome #furnitureflipper #newpaintcolors #easypeasypaint #furnitureartist

It is not necessary to clear coat before apply Voodoo Gel Stain, but Sam & Luanne find it easier to move the stain and take away any areas you don’t want to stain when using clear coat first.

The colors he used were French Linen, Sawmill Gravy & Antebellum Blue 😍

Love the idea of a coffee station!

Very vintage-y! Love it 😍

Hi Luanne & Sam!

The smallest details really do bring the piece together!

Sam prepped this piece with White Lightning & Slick Stick!
