acrylic headboard-how to paint HELP!!!

bellashereAugust 11, 2010

I have a dark fake wood headboard I want/need to paint. How do I do this the simplest?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I would clean with Dirtex, let dry. Sand with fine/medium grit sanding blocks or 150 grit sandpaper. Prime with BIN. Topcoat with two coats of some high quality 100 percent acrylic paint in satin or better sheen.
