West Elm is one of my favorite go-to's for furniture, lighting & decor. My home has a collection of their stuff. Although I have used West Elm light fixtures in my current condo renovation project, I don't have the budget for their furniture.
After painting a feature wall in the bedroom Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, I wanted something that would really "pop" for a headboard. I saw this headboard from West Elm and LOVED it.
With shipping surcharges & taxes this piece comes in over $500...not going to work for this project. Meanwhile, I spotted this headboard from Wayfair. Look familiar?
This headboard is metal rather than wood.... and it's not the right color to pop against the navy feature wall. However at the $110 price tag, I figured I could make it work! So, I ordered it.
The headboard arrived in a few days. The metal was a bit more bronze in color than I expected. But that didn't matter, as I had plans to change it up anyway.
I picked up some of this at my local paint store.
And got to work in my garage. One coat was not enough.
Two did it...
Some hacks work, some don't.... I am pretty pleased with how this turned out.
Happy hacking! Leslie
