Before and After {Antique Bed} {Rope Bed}

This was a custom order for Jennifer and one of my favorite black projects to date. As you've probably heard me say before- I always have the hardest time with black. The lap marks, the brush strokes, even taking pictures. 
It drives. me. cray cray.

So, on this project I tried some different techniques and even a different product or two. I think it turned out beautifully.

Does that look smooth or what?
It IS smooth- and I'm proud :)

Here's the before
