I added 14 inches to the bottom so it would be high enough. Lightly sanded, primed , painted and glazed. Not hard at all.

pk @ Room RemixVery pretty! Like it much better after you painted it. Have a good weekend...
I love the color of the headboard. Would you share the color and type of glaze? Many thanks. It's beautiful.
I really LOVE your headboard! You really did a fantastic job...it's sooo gorgeous!!! Really, awesome paint job :0)
Very clever. I love that you saw the potential to make it so much better, and boy did you! Great job.
You really are THAT good! You did a marvelous job of creating a stylish headboard on a budget. It's amazing what a little paint and creativity can do! :-)Shannon
How funny, I was looking at that headboard for my own master bedroom, but I didn't want to spend the $400.00. I like that you made it your own!
Love it!You took an already pretty headboard and made it even better!! Also, thanks for your visit to Hill Country House and please do not think I think blogging is wasting time! I love it and think it is a wonderful creative outlet.....I just can't seem to bump it up high enough on the priority list. Have a great weekend!
Ah, find the piece, and then adapt it to the space, with paints, with enhacements. I will have to get out and visit Pier 1.
Awesome project! Love that piece and it turned out perfectly!Tami
It's delightful and delovely! Wonderful makeover!!
Yes! You are. Never doubted it!
Amazing! What a transformation!Love the look....
WOW! Love the color. You did a wonderful job.
I like what you did to the headboard. This looks great!December Blessings,d
You are amazing, no doubt, my friend. I love it now. Hugs, Cindy S.
I loved this post! Would love to know your paint/glaze recipe for the bed also. Rindy
I used Sherwin William's Paints in a acrylic matte. The color for the base was oyster white. The glaze was a mix of pavestone and water, half to half. You put the watered down paint on and then start taking it right back off with a cloth. Not hard at all.
I love it and you are that good!!!Have a good weekend,Carolyn
You ARE Good!!! That headboard caught my eye right off, remember?! Perfect little image to start...made me smile. Thanks for sharing the secret. -s
Nice job! It's perfect for the room.
I don't even have a headborad yet. I think this is exactly what I'm looking for. Now the hunt will be just as fun as the project. Thanks for the inspiration!Kelly
Mom, It's sad that I had to see the new guest room on the internet! Cook me dinner so I can come home! Love you!- L
Lace, You are real funny! I've cooked for you twiced this week and you were here less than a hour ago for coffee and cake... love ya
Leah, You have been here for dinner as well, I don't which one of my L girls is trying to be funny... But you know, both are welcome anytime. Love you too!
What type of paint was the pavestone? was it a glaze mixed with the paint? Thanks!
Just paint the same type as the white. I just mixed it with water.
What you did with that headboard is delicious, simply delicious. I have decided to re do all of my living room furniture which is cherry/ and or dark wood into a shabby chic look. Having always loved that calm, sweet look. Will get a hold of you later for the "recipe". Thanks Again!PS. have those poor daughters over for dinner, kidding, I have two of my own and it sounded just like them. Poor babies... :)
Posted my comment under your "Recipe for a Room". (That's what I get for being in a hurry.) So much to do, not enough time.....I'm beginning to feel like Alice's Rabbit. "I'M LATE, I'M LATE....for a very important date........" :) -Brenda-
LOVE IT! Did you link this to Met Monday? I hope so...it's a great Before and After! :-)
