Updating an old headboard and footboard
I took a piece of scrap wood I had, cut to fit and add some screws at the back with my Kreg Jig. Then I decided to paint it white because it’s big, so this way it would look lighter wherever it was placed.
For that, I used Old Fashioned Milk Paint in Snow White.
I love it because it’s a green paint and all you have to do is mix the same amount of paint with the same amount of water.
I used the Safe Paint version because I didn’t sand the footboard and I wasn’t looking for a big chippy look.

You may think I did it wrong because it is backwards, but that’s the way you need to print the image if you want to transfer it to wood.
I did two coats front and back, letting dry between each of them.
Seeing it white it looked so romantic that I thought a French flaire would be great.
