Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe design team found this awesome secondhand headboard on the Internet for $50.
With a little elbow grease and ingenuity, design assistant Wanda Colón was able to make it brand new again. The first thing she did was remove the loose paint and sand down some of the rust. She didn't get rid of all the rust because it will help add texture and give the piece an aged look. The headboard was then covered in a rust-colored primer and a coat of brown paint. Once the basecoat was dry, a mix of black, copper and bronze metallic paints were dabbed onto the headboard using a dry-brush technique called pouncing. The multi-toned paint treatment gives the headboard a vintage look that adds to the Spanish-cottage design.
