Hello friends, I have something fun to share: we inherited a huge king size headboard a year ago, and I love the shape of it, but the black color just didn’t work in our bedroom.
I finally repainted it white, which has made such a huge difference in making our bedroom more cohesive.
It looks so much bigger now!
Let me take you on a tour of the changes I’ve made in our bedroom since I haven’t shown it to you for a while.
Here is a reminder of what the headboard looked like before:
Painting a Headboard – Easy Bedroom Makeover
We literally have no black furniture in our house, most of it is white or brown, so this big king size headboard was such an eyesore.
I wasn’t looking forward to painting it — it meant moving our king bed, painting it with primer and then two coats to go from black to white, but I’m so glad I finally did it.
I bought all the painting supplies at Home Depot, but you can find all of them as well on Amazon.
After moving the bed and taping up the wall and floor, the fun could begin. Since the headboard is screwed to the wall, I didn’t want to take it off the wall and just painted it in place.
I used a primer first, and then it took two coats to go from black to white.
Now this big headboard works so well in our bedroom.
If you like this headboard design, here is a similar one on Amazon. It’s surprisingly affordable!
I love the big window we have in our bedroom. Since we have blinds, I haven’t felt the need to put up curtains, even though I have several curtain sets sitting in our closet.
The new striped bedspread is from HomeGoods.
The gold from the bench works great with this $19 gold table, also from HomeGoods. It took a while to find it because it had to be small but tall to fit into this corner.
The lamp is a tag sale find. Do you remember what an ugly lampshade it had? I called it the ugliest lamp ever in this post about it.
Since I was painting, I also painted the top of Don’s IKEA bedside table to have it blend in more. It needs another coat, and I might also paint the door.
All of these items are tag sale finds.
This dresser was Don’s parents’ dresser for many, many years — I think it was a wedding present.
Don’s mom wanted to get rid of it when she moved years ago, and I said there is no way we are giving that away to a stranger – I want it.
We have use it for our clothes for years now, in the two apartments we lived in and now in our house.
My mom and I painted it with chalk paint during one of her visits, and I’m so glad we have this heirloom.
I added a stool from Target in this corner in front of Don’s closet and changed out the art work, and here is Don’t office nook next his closet.
Knowing me, I’ll change things around again in a few week, but that’s part of the fun, right?
