Headboard - Paint it - Finish in an afternoon

We have a bonus room in the new house.  You know the kind…with the short walls.

Perfect for the older, shorter headboards.

The Homeright Finish Max makes any paint job easier.

Unlike other sprayers that I’ve used, this one is very easy to clean.

The cleaning part was what I dreaded until I tried the HomeRight C800766 Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer (affiliate link).

I used Maison Blanche chalk-based paint and the color is Chloe, you don’t have to sand or strip. I like easy. All I did was clean the bed.

Thin the paint, according to the directions included with the sprayer.

Attach the suction tube with the angle pointed to the front of the cup.

The three way sprayer adjustment makes it easy to control your spray pattern.

After the paint dried, I brought the headboard in to distress the edges.

I finished it with light brown Antique Wax.

The bonus room will be used for more than sleeping.

There will be a t.v. and xbox in there on the opposite end of the sleeping area.

I wanted to keep things fun.

And the greens and blues are my favorite colors.

Speaking of fun, I remember taking naps at my Grandma’s house, sleeping on top of bedspreads just like this one.

Waking up with round dents in my face.

    1. What doesn’t need painting at my house would make a much shorter list! I have several furniture pieces that could use some updating and this would make the jobs less daunting, for sure!

    2. My son has an old headboard and footboard that I would LOVE to paint in red and black to match his TaeKwonDo theme we are doing in his room!

    4. I love the color you picked for your headboard and it looks fabulous. I have a 70s era big oval dark stained pine table that I have been dying to give a paint makeover to. The HomeRight sprayer would be a great help. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    5. I have upper kitchen cabinets to paint – once my husband builds them – then I would love to paint my dining table and chairs, my living room walls, and a couple of mid-century modern pieces left in the house when I bought it! 🙂 Can’t wait!

    7. Oh my gosh, you have no idea how much I need one of these! I have been lusting after one of these for months. I just hope that if I am not the lucky winner of this giveaway, that Santa will keep in mind that I have been a Very Good Girl this year! 😉

    8. Oh I NEED this! Love the lines of that headboard, Debbie and the perfect fresh color choice! My grandmother had those exact bedspreads, too — I’d love to find two to put on the twin beds in my guest room. 🙂 Enjoy your day ~ xo Heidi
