Antique Ornate Headboard
This headboard has definitely made the top of the list of my favorite finds umm… like ever!
I got this at a local thrift store here in NY called Amvets and it didn’t have a price tag and I couldn’t tell if it was a full or a queen. I REALLY needed a queen. When I spotted it tucked away in the corner with all of the other run of the mill boring headboards, I knew she had to be mine! I may or may not have sent Savannah a picture message of it the second I found it! She always gets excited for me when I have great finds! BFFL right!?
Somehow, I have LOST the before picture!! BAD, BAD BLOGGER MALLORY! I know. And I’m sorry!
Really, it was a simple project so I’ll just give you the run down…
All I did was wiped it down really good. Primed it with Kilz Spray Primer and gave it two good coats of Rustoleum’s Antique White. Then, I took my sanding block and distressed it by hand! Easy!
I am obsessed with the gorgeous detail of this piece!
Oh yeah!! Did I mention it was $9.95!?? LOVE!!

It’s so amazing how you can transform something with little more than a coat of paint! Love it~
