How to makeover a headboard?
I'm thinking of doing something to our boring IKEA headboard and frame. I've thought of painting it gold, or another colour with gold. The paint I found is from a craft store and is a vintage chalk matte gold (haven't purchased it yet). Questions-1. Would this colour be ok for a bed frame? I can't quite tell what it would look like. 2. is it possible to do this makeover without taking the mattress off the bed? 3. What all do i need to do to before painting it? Do I need to sand the frame? It is IKEA so not like it's really high quality wood, I'm thinking. It's painted black/ dark brown already. 4. Finally, does anyone have any other colour suggestions? I really want to paint the walls a turquoise/ sea blue. I'm trying to bring more of a bohemian feel to our bedroom, so I really want colours and even metal colours. I've never painted furniture like this before. That is, aside from spray painting some old sofa tables and a chair when I was in my early 20's, so nothing that I really cared about or that others had to live with. I'd like to do this right since my husband has to also like it.
