Back in the spring, I was bummed that the full/queen headboard I had fixed up for the guest bedroom was an eyesore because it was truly a queen size after-all. I was at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago and ran across another full size headboard at Goodwill for only $15. It is about 4″ less wide than the old headboard, so it will actually line up with and attach to the bed frame. I thought it would work really well in the guest room. That is, once it was no longer fire-engine red. Bradley had to go back with me later, because of course it wouldn’t fit in my car:)
I used the primer I had used on the kitchen cabinets. Then I painted the headboard Canyon Echo by Glidden. It is a very pale grey. I am still working towards this color palette:
I also found a small round side table at Goodwill for $5. It was a little banged up, but I glued and puttied and painted it right up. I was able to sell the old headboard and the old side table/ file stand to get them out of the way. I couldn’t be more pleased with the new furniture. The scale of both the headboard and side table just work so much better in the room.
