    The colour is great…..I love that you used up some leftover paint. I went through my cans yesterday, and now I’m looking for a surface that needs a refresh!

It dried by the time we got to the end of the wall and then just one coat of dark paint covered it all with no problem. I’m so glad you got a freebie cost though!!! It did cover great as is!!! I’m glad your health seems better so that you can do projects.

I ended up choosing a gray gauze cloth fabric (this is similar to what I used), which definitely wasn’t a solid fabric, but more of a mesh like material. If the headboard I was covering would have been at all bright or patterned, I would have had to cover it before I used the final fabric, but the tan fabric of the existing board blended perfectly.
