Mr. RTI and I made quiet a large purchase a few months ago...a adjustable posturpedic bed..or beds two xl twins (so each side adjust independently ). This decision was based on a few health issues and the fact that you spend 33% or roughly 25 years of your life sleeping. I am not going to lie to you I have driven cars that cost less then those beds However we do sleep really good! Amazing what a good mattress and bed can do for your overall health. The purchase of the bed offered the opportunity to create my own headboard!
I purchased an old panel door from habitat for 25 bucks.
The paint was chippy So I removed it....mental note if you are not sure what kind of paint you are dealing with on an old item...wear a mask while sanding ...or scraping.
After a lot of sanding and paint removing....
We were ready to paint!
I used a custom mix...of a neutral color . I sometimes will change up my bedding in the winter as well as other decor in the room. I am also proud of the fact that I remembered to make extra for the furniture that I will need to paint for the room as well.
I dark and clear waxed this headboard....
I am so glad that I stuck with this project....
I think we will have to lower it a bit...and when we put the new windows in...they will be narrower and the bed will fit nicely between them. Now I am off...there are three more pieces of furniture for this room that need paint.
I hope that this may have inspired you to just stick with it, you will get that project done!
