I've been wanting to paint my headboard for years. It was my in-laws, and they gave it to me when I got married (17 yrs ago(yes, I procrastinate
)). So last year I bought some chalk paint and redid my dresser and nightstand, but for some reason didn't do my headboard. So when I was vacuuming under the bed yesterday and had to take the bed apart to do so, I removed the headboard and spent this morning painting it.
I've been in a craft slump this year, so it was fun to get crafty again. I used gold paint as the highlight. It looked too flat when it was just off-white. I love the chalk paint. No sanding or priming was required.
Thanks for looking!
