I was lucky enough to find this King Sized headboard at the thrift store for $30! I used The Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint in “Skillet” and transformed it into this picture perfect headboard for our new bedroom!

It was very simple! First I cleaned the headboard with warm soap and water and a sponge, just to get any germs off, I sprayed with Lysol…then lightly sanded it with medium sandpaper,wiped it down and painted. It took about 15 minutes to paint. After I let it dry for a couple of hours, I sanded it lightly in areas where I wanted it to look “distressed”. That’s it! Total time about 3 hours. If
I can do it, anyone can!
