Cannonball Bed REDO


Alright...well, I do know this isn't the most original RRR project in the world (because who hasn't painted a piece of furniture?), but y'all, it had to be done. And, if I can help the one person out there that hasn't painted a piece of furniture before, then so be it. 
Let's get to it.



You may disagree, but I've always liked this style of bed...and luckily my parents listened when I told them I'd love to have theirs whenever they decided to get rid of it.
Bed...free.


The first step I took was sanding...just enough to take the shine off really.


Next I primed it...2 coats of Kiltz.
Quart of Kiltz- $8.


Lastly, I painted...2 coats of aqua (Vaspar's Woodlawn Charm, to be exact).
Although I typically rough up anything I paint, this one I decded to leave alone (Besides the scratches I made trying to put the mattress and box springs in place by myself. Ugh.).
It's a nice change, I think.
Quart of Valspar custom color- $15.

Total cost- 23 bucks.


I'm also fully aware how blank and bare it is in here.
That's coming...


...eventually.


Now go check out the other cool RRR projects for this month!
