Hi, remember me?  I’m that project that Kristen started almost a month ago!

Rattan Chippendale Headboard Primer

… and here I am, finally finished!

Chinese Chippendale Headboard

The Chinese Chippendale Headboard!  WooHoo!

I chose black because I thought it would suit most decor.  I think it turned out really well.  After the first coat of black, I went back and did a little sanding in spots, then painted another coat.  The only thing I’m debating is putting a clear coat on it.  Thoughts?  I don’t want to make it too shiny, but I was thinking the extra coat would help protect it.  What do you think?

It measures 59″ across and is 48″ tall. It does not have any way to attach the bed frame.  Sooo… you’ll have to be creative on that end!  It is rattan so it’s lightweight.

I’ll get some better photos up soon, but it is in the Shop!
