Easy Headboard Handrail!

Posted by gardengnomegirl (My Page) on

I found this God-awful headboard discarded behind a discount furniture store. The frame was metal and an awesome Art Nouveau style but, it was painted Black Laquer and fake brass! To have such a pretty frame, this thing looked like it came straight outta an old Miami Vice re-run! Well, I painted it an aged copper shade and instantly brought the old beautiful style back to it. I hadn't even figured out what to do with it until my Fiancee made a small walkway in our backyard...exactly the length of a Queen-sized headboard. YAY! so we drove a big spike into the ground where each leg would go and inserted them into the legs(they were hollow) and tahdah! I'll post a pic when I can soon. I imagine you could use just about any pretty metal head or foot board the same way. Just make sure you rust proof it first.
