    Chalk paint. Add canopy. Add lace between posts.

      Why chalk paint? I know very little about it.

    Just because it's trending. I've done several pieces with it but didn't use the wax to finish up...simply because I've got fibro and a back problem and I'm not into applying wax every six or twelve months. The wax highlights any detail but I choose to use a clear matt top coat that never needs to be repeated. But if you're ready for a change use any kind of paint. Instead of updating the bed, change the wall color and curtains...if you paint the bed there's no going back!

    Sue: I would also chalk paint and dark wax it. Make a fun color -- it can always be changed. Then, new comforter = new bed.
