How do you paint a dark wooden bed white?

Paint the furniture with white latex paint in an eggshell or semi-gloss finish. Flat finishes pick up dirt quickly, and high-gloss finishes show painting and surface mistakes easily. Coat the furniture with several light layers, and give each sufficient time to dry before applying the next layer.

Herein, how do you paint a wooden bed white?

Apply a light coat of latex enamel paint, using a medium and/or a small paint brush. Allow the paint to dry for at least two hours, or as directed on the paint can. Start painting at the top of the bed and work down to the bottom. Apply a second light coat of paint and allow it to dry.

Subsequently, question is, can you paint a wooden bed white? To get the best possible finish, it's best to apply a lot of thin coats of paint. Never try to cover your furniture in just one coat of paint, as you'll never achieve a good finish. We used Farrow & Ball All White Floor paint (which we also had left from painting our floor).

Herein, how can I change the color of my bed frame?


  1. Before painting, sand the frame and apply two coats of primer. Let dry; then apply two coats of paint, letting dry between coats.
  2. To match the bed frame, we chose linens in red, white, and blue. A limited color palette helps unify the mix of patterns and solids.

What kind of paint do you use on pine wood?

Select an oil-based paint for a more durable finish. Oil-based paints are much more resistant against the color bleeding that can be a big problem with pine. Try getting an alkyd paint, which is made with synthetic resins. Make sure the primer you used is compatible with the paint you pick.
