A sneak peek at my headboard makeover

Pin It Now!

Here's a small peek at my headboard makeover. You can see the "before" picture of the free headboard here. This is an "in-progress" picture, it was taken before I distressed it and put a coat of paste wax on it. It's hard to get a good picture of it because it's in front of a window. There are lace curtain panels over the window and you can't even see them. Once I finish all the furniture I'll post pictures of everything.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
MYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!
GOODNESS!!!!!

That is just beautiful. Question: I know what paste wax is, but are you using that in place of a a clear varnish? Just wondering, I only have about ten pieces of furniture I'd like to paint. Blessings
