From Bryce:

My gran recently down scaled and passed this headboard down to me. She couldn’t believe my interest in such an old piece of her furniture. I immediately saw its retro mid-century potential and spent the weekend giving it a fresh look. I removed the dated light fixtures, sanded down the existing handles and gave the drawers a new look by spraying them with a layer of Flat White RUSTOLEUM paint.

My gran is happy to have kept the piece in the family and I am happy with my a ‘head’ of the times, headboard.

Thank you Bryce!
