I have had this single bed headboard for a while, as I bought it in a thrift store for my daughter's bedroom and never used, as it was way too low. But I love the look. Well, not so keen in the shinny gold colour....So I used my secret weapon for annoying patinas...spray paint!
For some reason, I did not take pictures of the "before", and I apologize for this, but I took pictures of another ( double bed) identical headboard ( that btw I also bought in a thrift store and did not use...yet!) for "the before and after ".
I used Krylon primer -white- and Krylon Ivory matte, 2 coats
I am using it now as a storage type of thing for some of my fabric in my craft room, but still not sure what I will use it for sure, I just like the shape, colour and details of it to part it now..:0)
