I thought about titling this post “Headboard Hell”. The end result was worth it, but dang… First, I put my palm sander to it, but I could not really get into the corners very well. Then, I primed all of it except the back and the legs (both of these will be hidden). Next, I painted it a semi-gloss white. And again. And again. Then, I cut four birds out of contact paper along with a thin strip of painter’s tape. I put these on the backboard to look like birds on a power line. Then I painted over them with high gloss black. When I removed the contact paper and tape…

The white flaked and the black bled but after touch up after touch up I think it is ready for the reveal. Ta Da!!
