An inexpensive way to create a new look is to paint your furniture. It’s not as hard as you may think, and the results are well worth the effort. You save money, and it’s a great way to recycle!
Updating an old oak bedroom set that we’ve had for many years has been on my to-do list for some time. I finally did it, and it’s given new life to my guestroom!
Originally both the headboard and footboard had very tall posts.
Tired of the 4-post look, I wanted a simpler style. I decided to take this make-over one step further and really change the look of the bed.
My husband cut the posts down. I purchased finish pieces from Home Depot and attached them with Gorilla Glue. I lightly sanded with a palm sander, applied one coat Sherwin Williams Multi-Purpose Latex Primer and two coats Benjamin Moore Devonshire Green 1489 in a satin finish.
New satin nickel hardware is my favorite part of this NH home makeover.
