Our bed didn't have a headboard and after about 6 months it was time to figure something out. I found an OLD headboard...at a yard sale actually and wasn't too happy with its first impression. However, I tried to look past its current state and imagine its NEW potential! It took several coats of paint and a little experimenting, but the final piece looked pretty fantastic!

|I seem to have underestimated the slick surface...|
|My final product! With a second coat of flat black paint. I painted a piece of plywood a lemongrass color and we nailed it right on the the back of the original headboard!|
