Having a king size bed with plain stained wood headboard was boring , I stained the wood a few yrs ago I got from bunnings  , so I decided a make over was due , first I sanded back the wood , then painted them both with white gloss paint let it dry ,after it dried I applied  painters tape ,to make the crisscross affect , then with left over paint around the house mixed it all together , the effect was amazing , but take the tape off while the paint is still wet or it will affect the outcome…

Same as the headboard paint with a gloss white paint let it dry  , no sanding needed lol , put your painters tape on :) try not to overload the paint cause it will make the picture lift in places if it's to thick, paint them using the same left over colours as the head board and remove tape while wet , let dry , oh I painted the frame the gloss white to a few coats were needed for that , only because I couldn't remove the frame from the picture :)

As you can see the draws came up a treat , next step was the romantic four poster bed look , I used curtain white wire you can get from bunnings . Attached a few small hooks to the ceiling , ran the curtain wire from the hooks to make the square look , before attaching the curtain wire make sure you place your curtains on the wire , the hooks will hold the weight these curtains were brought from Kmart at $18 each

First coat of white gloss paint , it took 2 to 3 coats before I was happy with the finished product , don't forget to paint near the draw opening ect

Next step was to take the handles off and sand with light sandpaper

The end affect of the headboard , now to add the touches to your curtains grab some cheap  white lace curtains from Kmart , big w , place 1 on either side then for the middle just wrap 1 or 2 around the pole and adjust it to your liking , place the lace curtains over the front of your existing main curtains

Removal of the painters tape you need to do it while paint is wet , leave to dry or if your in a hurry use a hair drier haha
