Why is God’s name would you paint a beautiful wood headboard ?
27524803 on Jun 24, 2018It its the "trend" right now.... I would give it several good coats of shellac, lacquer, or clear sealer... before painting....that way it will be easier to strip later (it prevents the paint from penetrating the wood grain as much)Helpful Reply
Dfm on Jun 24, 2018I have no idea. I see so many posts saying it’s so out dated....trends come and go...classics stay the tests of time.Helpful Reply
Gk on Jun 24, 2018Sometimes it's a hard decision to make! There are some beautiful wooden headboards out there waiting for someone to do something with them! It all comes down to personal preference and what the current trend is.Helpful Reply
