Our Mantel Moulding Headboard with a Unique Twist

The charming Mantel Moulding Headboard with a unique accent feature where the "fire" would normally be. We created a tufted cushion for this open space to create a unique twist.

My wife and I completed this project over 4 days, but still under 20 hours not including wait time for wood filler and paint to dry.

Type of Wood
Whitewood and Pine
Finish Used
After sanding down the wood with a medium grit sandpaper, we brushed on an initial coat of primer. After the primer dried we applied between 2-3 coats of Valspar Radience Paint and Primer (spray paint) Gloss Azure Snow. This awesome color gives you the classic white with hints of grey and blue.

If you go the paint and primer combo you do not necessarily need to brush on the primer first. For a more smooth and glossy look of the wood accents more counts may be needed but please wait until the first coats are mostly dry.
