This is a bed that I matched to a style for a customer. They already had a Cherry Creek piece and wanted to match the moldings. I started with my Ross Murphy bed and made the slight modifications. I also matched the colors. The color ended up being a dye stain 50 parts thinner to 1 part brown and then Minwax’s Red Chestnut.

Here are a few building pictures:

Great job! I especially like the color and appearance of the finish. The built in lighting is icing on the cake.
Keep up the good work.
