Coral Striped Headboard

This is a simple headboard that I painted grey with a coral stripe down the center.
I've never used stripes on furniture before and I was a little hesitant to try. I just used regular blue painter's tape (not the expensive stuff). I painted the coral in the middle. Taped off the sides. Sealed the tape with the coral color and then painted the grey. After a few coats and a couple of days I peeled off the tape and I had a perfectly crisp line.  Easy Peasy!

The paint colors are Behr's Creek Bend and Youthful Coral. I just purchased the testers for $3 at Home Depot. 

You can find this piece for sale in my Etsy Shop. 


  1. Love it! I've had a vision of an old headboard painted a fun color for our guestroom & I think I may have just replaced the picture in my head with your striped headboard!
