    I found this fun wood headboard on my local selling site and fell for the large round finials. I have a thing for a bright happy headboard so I pulled out my fresh shipment of Sweet Pickins paint and tried to decide between Pantry Door and Completely Coral.

    Two great colors but only one headboard, hmm.

    Choosing the paint color was the hardest part of the whole project!

    In the end I went with Completely Coral because who doesn’t love a good punch of color to brighten the morning when you hop out of bed?
    I’ve got to tell you, this color was SO fun to play with!

    Because the coral is so vibrant, I chose to keep the overall look pretty simple.

    Isn’t she darling?
    Wouldn’t this headboard look fantastic in a tween girl’s room?

    Did you have to sand this down before hand? I would love to know the steps of this as I am starting to get into fixing up older furniture

      Hi Taylor! I cleaned the headboard and then gave it a light sand to make sure it was nice and smooth with no sharp edges. Then I sprayed it with shellac, let that dry, then painted, sanded/distressed, and sealed. If you’d like to see my general process check out my post on how to prep furniture. You can find that here… http://gypsymagpie.com/2017/03/furniture-prep-checklist.html
