I cannot reiterate how ridiculous I am for deciding to repaint my bedroom furniture while packing for a move. Paint a coat…pack while it dries…then sleep for a very long time…However, I must say the sore right arm and fatigue was well worth it as I’m very pleased with the results. I used two coats of Behr’s Silver Leaf paint and I recommend using their primer + paint in a can. It’s not ridiculously expensive and it does a decent job.
Here is a before shot of my old Pier 1 Mexican pine headboard:
And here it is after the makeover….much more Francais apres paint 🙂
I also finished my dresser. It was also part of the matchy-matchy Pier 1 Mexican pine set. Okay it still matches the headboard….but at least it looks more chic!
I plan on replacing the paint stained hardware with some new shiny silver hardware from Lee Valley Tools. I will post pictures of my French-country-meets-modern-French-chic bedroom after my move.
