Create your own abstract graphic headboard with a simple stencil and metallic paint for a burnished metal look.
Paint a headboard
You will need:
Measure the width you want your wall panel to span (approx 10-20cm wider than your bed). Mask it vertically with painters’ tape. Paint the panel with a Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen basecoat colour according to your choice of metallic paint.*
Apply two coats of Resene Enamacryl Metallic on top of the basecoat. Leave to dry before taping the stencil.
Create a vertical and horizontal grid with painters’ tape over the metallic paint. Rip pieces of tape and randomly fill in the grid sections with criss-crossed lengths of tape.
* Note: When using Resene Metallics, a basecoat is recommended for a more vibrant result. Once you’ve selected your metallic paint, you can find the corresponding basecoat on the Resene Metallics & Special Effects colour chart.
