Transform a thrift store find into a unique soccer bed. This is a sponsored post with Goodwill San Antonio.
My son is crazy about soccer, so I thought it would be fun to make a soccer themed bed for his room. I found a very sturdy solid wood headboard and footboard at Goodwill San Antonio. With some paint and fabric I gave this bed a complete makeover!
Supplies Used for this Bed Makeover Project:
- Headboard and footboard
- Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting and Carbon
- Soft touch Varnish
- Oly-Fun fabric in Jet black and Snow white
- Modeling paste
- Staple gun
- Painters tape
- Soccer hexagon template
Step one: Remove the fabric panels from the bed by unscrewing them. Remove the fabric.
Step two: Wipe all the dust off the furniture. Fill in unwanted design elements with modeling paste and let it dry. Sand the dried paste smooth.
Step three: Paint the headboard and footboard with Carbon Chalky Finish paint. Let the first application dry and then add a second layer of paint.
Step four: Tape around the end posts and center of the pieces. Paint with Everlasting Chalky Finish Paint.
Step five: Cut a 2 inch hexagon from the fabric to use as a template. Trace the hexagon onto the ball posts in pencil. Fill in the design with Carbon Chalky Finish Paint.
Step six: Brush Soft Touch Varnish over the painted surfaces and let it dry.
Step seven: Use the soccer pattern template to cut the black Oly-Fun fabric. I imported the file and used my cutting machine to cut the fabric, but you could also trace it onto the fabric and cut it.
Step eight: Arrange the design as desired on the white fabric. Use Decoupage to adhere the black fabric to the white fabric. Seal it With another application of Decoupage.
Step nine: Cover the wood panel with batting, and then place the decoupaged fabric over it. Use a staple gun to attach the fabric to the panel, then screw the panel back onto the bed.
This soccer bed project took awhile, but it was well worth the effort!
