I've wanted to find a pineapple headboard for a long time.
I wanted one so bad I might have become a pineapple stalker, calling local thrift stores, pulling over at every garage sale, looking in peoples bedroom windows to see if I could buy theirs.
OK not the last one, but if I hadn't found this one when I did I might have started peeping. :)
Here's the before.
And here she is now.
The original headboard had a beautiful stain- a deep mahogany. I didn't want to completely lose it so I tried something a little different. I sanded the headboard enough for the paint to hold to, but I left most of the deep color. When I was painting some of the stain would peep through the red, usually on edges and the curves. I LOVE the aged look it added.
She's a twin headboard, painted in Forbidden Red by Behr and waxed with Howard's Citrus Shield.
For more info, look at the For Sale tab at the top of the page.
P.S. She'll be at by booth at the Vintage Market THIS Saturday.
And keep checking back, I'm staging several other pieces today and I'll post them over the next few days.
