I had big pretty big plans to have the twins’ big girl/ big boy rooms ready for Christmas. I admit…I failed. I just couldn’t get everything ready in time…don’t know how interior designers do it all. I bow down!!! Anyway, I had an idea for little man’s room, whereas little miss’s room stumped me. I thought I was going to make Zane’s headboard and had pinned a few that I liked and thought I could DIY…
Found on Pinterest…not sure of source.
But when I was searching for little miss I found one that I liked for lil’ man. It was at an Unfinished Furniture Store and was classic and simple…just what I wanted. Bought it for $135 plus a couple cans of chalk paint (which I really liked using). They would have painted it but it would have cost $180…uh, nope! So all I needed for him now was a bed frame and bedding. My MIL gave me an pine nightstand that I painted the same color as headboard and added fun knobs from Hobby Lobby (50% off of course).
I used a foam brush and did about 3 coats. You don’t have to use a primer with this paint so it wasn’t too bad! Then I put 3 coats of a sealer on the front. The sealer went on fast and dried fast.
I couldn’t find 8 knobs of the same color so I just bought what they had and decided to spray paint them orange.
The weather was not cooperating so I moved the pieces inside to add the sealer. It was a water based sealer so the fumes weren’t too bad and I opened a window just in case.
