I've been wanting to paint the headboard & footboard in our guest bedroom for quite awhile now. My best friend stayed with us recently and when I stripped the bed to wash the sheets I thought to myself "what a perfect time to go ahead and paint!".
I don't have a true "before" picture but you can catch a glimpse of the honey-colored footboard in this post. I used a cream-colored paint and then very lightly added a light green in trim areas - I wiped it so the color is faint.
I'm so happy with the result and wish I had done this project a long time ago!
