In a well-ventilated space, cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp.
Before starting, read the Krylon® labels for safety and application instructions.
Ensure that the wooden headboard is bare or stripped and that the wood is clean and dry.
Use painter’s tape to create a triangle pattern on one side of the headboard. To achieve the pictured look, outline a triangle with the base starting on the right side, and the tip ending in the left third of the headboard. This is the area that will be painted with Krylon spray paint and brush-on paint. Cover the remaining area of the headboard with painter’s tape and newspaper to protect the Minwax Finish you applied to the wood.
Lightly sand the exposed portion of the headboard to prep the surface for Krylon application and wipe away any sanding dust with a clean cloth. The surface should be smooth, dull, and dry before spray painting.
Spray paint the exposed portion of the headboard using Krylon Fusion All-In-One® in Satin White. Allow the spray paint to fully dry before moving on to the next step.
When the Fusion All-In-One® is fully dry, apply Krylon Brilliant Metallic Brush-On in Pearlescent on top of the Fusion All-In-One® Satin White spray paint using a clean, high-quality brush.
When the Brilliant Metallic Brush-On is fully dry, remove the painter’s tape from the headboard and allow the paint to fully dry before applying a protective topcoat to the entire project.
Style your headboard with neutral tones or bright bedding!
