Today I’m going to show you how to completely transform the look of a headboard with paint.
With light sanding, primer and paint, I was able to take this dark headboard and turn it into a light and airy french inspired piece.

Here is what we had in the guest room to begin with.
I was ready to work some magic until my husband came home with this!
Sherwin Williams Summer White semi-gloss paint or Satin
Clean using Tsp or vinegar and hot water.
Buff the furniture using a sanding sponge
Prime with an oil-based primer. Foam rollers will give you the look as though your cabinets have been sprayed. In the hard to reach areas I used a spray primer
Paint your desired color using a foam roller or spray them.
NOTE: Latex paint will adhere perfectly to oil-based primer. Latex primer over oil paint will not work at all.
Let it dry, buff out any drips and give it another coat.
I distressed the piece with coarse sandpaper
It was a pretty easy project that completely changed the look of the room!
Oh, and we sold my old bed for $50 on craigslist, I call that a great trade!
Enjoy your day friends!
