I had the opportunity recently to do a bedroom makeover for a sweet couple that is getting ready
to celebrate their 20th anniversary. They have never really decorated their space. In fact, they
have never even had a headboard! Thanks to the power of paint and my Super Finish Max
sprayer, we were able to complete this makeover in a few days and on a budget!
The first thing I did was build them a headboard. Since this was a king sized headboard, and
given the current price of lumber, this was the majority of the budget. But it was worth it!
After I built and sanded it, I used the Super Finish Max sprayer to paint it a warm white. Since unfinished wood
sucks up paint like a sponge, I adjusted the dial to let more paint out for the first coat. After that,
I turned the dial down to get more of a fine spray for a smooth finish. I love that the spray is so
TIP: When you paint unfinished wood, the grain will raise after the first coat and it will feel rough.
Use a 150 or 220 grit sandpaper to lightly sand it for a professional finish.
Next I painted the walls in the room. I chose a bright white for three of the walls and a warm
gray for the feature wall. I also painted all of the existing furniture.
The two dressers didn't match in style or size. But I knew if I painted them the same color, they
would look more cohesive.
After everything was painted, it was time to put the room together! New bedding, lighting, and
art finished off the space. I am so happy with how the room turned out, and more importantly, so
is the couple.
