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.

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...

  1. love it, holly- the color is amazing on it!

  2. Love this color! And I really love it not roughed up too...I go back and forth between roughing things up and not..sometimes it's just best to keep it clean :)...oh, and ps. my mom had this same bed when I was growing up!

  3. I am in love with this bed! I have never been a huge fan of cannonball style beds, but the happy paint really makes it special. Love that bedspread too - this room is going to be beautiful when you finish with it!

  4. I love the bed and the new color is perfect. Such a happy shade.

    1. Thanks! I'm pretty excited about it...but still lots to do in there!!

  5. Love it! Great color. I think you made the right choice not to rough it up. Can't wait to see the rest of the room as it progresses. -Jess
