A painted headboard...

Hi Everyone!  I've been busy getting ready for a mini-open house at the Studio.  The business contact I made at the Fair this Spring is coming tomorrow afternoon to take a look at some of the things I've made, hopefully she will find something she likes.  But tonight I thought I'd show you what I did with one of the headboards my Aunt Barb gave me last year that I hadn't done anything with yet.
 It was nice enough the way it was, but I thought it needed a little sprucing up.
 I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and then I sanded it.  I haven't waxed it yet.
 I thought I had better get pictures taken before the sunlight goes down too far.
 I really like this color.  I painted a dresser in it too that I'll show you soon.
And these feet are wonderful.  It still has the original casters on it...only one of the wooden wheels is split.  I was going to turn this into a bench, and I still might, but for now, it will be on display in my Studio.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. You've wasted no time, have you? It looks great. Can't wait to see the dresser.

  2. I think it would look great as a bench! Benches are ALWAYS popular around here...people ask and and say---CALL ME when you get a bench!

  3. love that it has the casters. I don't know how you left it alone.... lol I do see what you mean about some headboards STAYING headboards. I'll try to do it, we'll see if it works
    I have Paris Gray, but not a huge fan. I used it on those tables that sent me to the hospital (due to heat) and I don't think I've used it since

  4. I simply love this headboard and it looks fabulous in the soft grey. It sounds like your business is doing well.
