It's Thursday. It's almost Friday. That doesn't mean anything, just wanted to do the happy weekend dance.
Ok down to business.
Remember our master bed frame that I showed you last week?
Let's revisit it, shall we?
|[before: dark iron inserts].|
Yea yea I know you can tell we went furniture shopping in the mid-90s. But I still actually really like this bed.
Living in a house that backs up to a forested area, I still like the knotty wood since it translates well into our environment. One day I'd like to sand it down and refinish it to a more modern wood tone...but that's another project for another day.
I've had my eye on those iron inserts for a while now and since they were just screwed into the frame they were easy to remove, haul down to the garage, and spray paint.
For this easy project, I used one can of Rust-OLeum Champagne Mist [$6.76]
Following the can instructions; shake, shake, shake your booty [and the can], and when you think you think you're done shake some more. When I was all shook out, I sprayed 2 light coats onto the iron.
As an added bonus, I used the electric screwdriver to drive the mounting screws slightly into an piece of scrap wood and gave them a shot of the Champagne Mist as well...popping them through a cardboard box would've been easier but I inexplicably didn't have one!

Since the bedspread was going to be touching the iron inserts, I did wait the full 24-hour drying time before reinstalling them into the bed.
and voila! not bad for a $6.76 upgrade, eh?
|[after: a little bit rustic a little bit glam].|
I really adore this Champagne Mist color...now to find other things I can use it on...
