I decided to start a project today! Now let me be honest. I love to buy things with the intent to make them great. Sometimes I do and well…sometimes I don’t! I bought this ugly item back last December at my Goodwill for 50% off of the price tag on the bed so yep, $4.99 was my price. Nice. It is very heavy and I just loved the high headboard. I am not sure of the age of it but it is very heavy and solid. It did not have the bed rails with it, so I will have to “rig” it up to the bed frame. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it! Currently it is painted a very ugly and very bright yellow. I am not sure what I will do with it when I am finished.
I started stripping it today and made a good bit of progress. I ran out of stripper though and I let it dry too long the first time around so I really did not get off as much as I would have liked to. Next weekend I will add another coat of stripper.
The headboard (backside of it) and the footboard. I think the curved accent are very feminine and will look very girly when finished.
$9.99 was a bargain but hey, 50% off is even better!!
The front of the headboard and the front of the footboard.
Paint Stripper doing the work
What do you think? Should I paint it white so that it it will match pretty much anything in Sofia’s room or stain it back to the original condition. I think I might be leaning towards staining it but then I also think painting it and then maybe adding a monogram to the headboard might also be nice. Let me know what you think – paint or stain. If I paint it, what color?
