    This turned out beautiful! Might even motivate me to distress my daughter's painted headboard & footboard – that are already "distressed" and chipped from being in a preschooler's room!

    I love the lines of this Julie! That green was nice, but mildew is not, so I think refreshing her this way was a good idea. I could see a stencil or something like what you've shown on there as well. I hope it sells quickly for you! {Or not, if you really want to add the crown!} : )

    I really like it! Great makeover….I agree, TSP is awesome stuff. I started using it when I painted my cabinets in the kitchen! The glaze really adds alot of character to the headboard! Good choice on that!

    Wow . A lot of work but so worth the effort. Such a nice tutorial too.
    Thanks for visiting. I need to make sure to get over here more often. You always motivate me.

    I really love distressed items like this. I am scared to try it myself, although you make it look so easy. I love that the green shows through a bit.

    Simply wonderful! I had to laugh at your post about reluctant refinishers….I get that feeling EVERY time I do something, whether I'm painting a wall, or a piece of furniture! Love the crown idea….
    I'm in need for a nice solid wood queen size headboard for our guest bedroom. Doesn't matter what the finish is since I'll be redoing it anyways, but if you see something in your furniture treasure hunts with really nice lines, (and you're not buying it yourself) let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚
