I started aging the Bespaq bed by removing some of the Krylon Almond satin paint using a sanding stick. I picked up a package of these at Hobby Lobby. I wanted to emphasize the lines and details of the bed without overdoing it, especially since miniature finishes tend to work best when they are subtle. I dry brushed some brown paint into the grooves and recesses, again using only a little. It added some nice depth.
I cut new foam core board pieces to replace the original mattress. Two will be for the box spring and two will be for the mattress. The bed looks heavier now than it did in plain almond, don't you think?
