Painted Headboard

I found this Ethan Allen head/foot board combo at Goodwill for 10 bucks.  It didn’t have the rails to go with it, but that was ok.  The hubs attached them to an existing frame we had laying around.  You have old bed frames laying around, right? 

He’s handy like that.
Usually I’m the furniture painter in the family.  This time though The Hubs felt like being in charge.  He felt that priming would be, and I quote, “stupid.”  You know that old saying “pick your battles.”  This was one of those times.   Ok, no primer.   
 This is two coats people.  Let this be a lesson.  I even have a rhyme to help you remember.  Prime every time or listen to me whine.  Catchy eh? Notice the drips?  Yeah, me too. The Hubs didn’t. 
All finished in her brand new big girl room.
I can’t totally throw Hubs under the bus here.  He did a pretty good job.  Not bad for 10 bucks and a quart of paint.
