Headboard BEFORE & AFTER

I had been searching EVERYWHERE for a full size bed frame for my daughter...thrift stores, facebook, garage sales, craigslist & even the free barn!!!!! Well, I finally came across one on a Facebook sight that was less than appealing, but I could see the potential in this beauty :)

This is not the true before photo (because as always, I painted before taking photos!!) BUT, it was exactly like this.

I primed with an oil based spray primer from Sherwin Williams and added 2 coats of Satin White walmart paint.

BONUS: It came with a footboard :)
We left the little door off. We thought it looked better without it.

My daughter & I are both happy with the way it turned out. And, for only $40, I think it was a fabulous deal!!
