This gorgeous purple headboard was created by Heidi from Lily Field Furniture with our new limited edition color, Ever After!

This spindly headboard was the perfect candidate for the new Fall/Winter color Ever After! I just love the shade of this lilac/purple paint. It’s sophisticated and feminine.

To prepare the headboard for painting I gave it a good cleaning and then sanded lightly to knock the shine off. This step ensures good paint adhesion.

After vacuuming up all of the dust from sanding I went ahead and primed the headboard with Country Chic Paint Clear Bonding Primer.

The primer makes sure that it will stand up to heavy use (or little kids jumping on the bed)!

1 layer of Ever After All-in-One Decor Paint and a few coats of Clear Coat for protection and this bed is ready for a new home!

My favorite part about bedroom projects like these is knowing I am using products that are safe and free of harsh chemical additives such as phthalates, formaldehyde, heavy metals, and turpentine. Country Chic paints are also independently tested and certified safe for children’s furniture, as well as VOC-free.

You can’t get much better than that! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with for this gorgeous new color!

I absolutely love the job that I have and have so much fun with the process of thrifting and then refinishing furniture in a creative way.
