Old Brass Headboard Makeover

I have been on the lookout for a headboard for a few years now. When I saw this ugly brass headboard on a local selling site, I passed over it at first:

Not much to look at, is it? When I saw it pop up again, I offered the lady $10 and she accepted. It's not what I had been hoping for, but since my husband now wants to build a headboard, this will be a good place holder while I wait. Because we all know how long it takes when your handy husband says he wants to build something. Can I get an amen?

I started by lightly sanding everything, then spraying it with a layer of primer.

Then it got a few coats of Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze.

I had never used the metallic spray paint before and I was super impressed. Look how pretty it is:

Now I get what all the hype is over this product. Those sparkly flecks make the whole project feel legit. No one would ever guess that this headboard was a $10 junker. With it's new coat of paint, this thing is gorgeous!

Now my husband can take his sweet time making a custom headboard, because I could live with this one for years. Which we all know is exactly how long it will take him to make a different headboard anyway.
