How to Paint a Pop Art Bed

“It’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe

When I first laid eyes on this bed…..I couldn’t believe the beauty I was seeing! In fact…..I may have actually referred to it as ridiculous….

I had to have it……and was willing to take anyone down that tried to get in my way of owning it!

Dixie Belle Paint Products:

How To:

After much consideration I chose Tea Rose, Fluff, and Caviar as my design colors.

Now can we just stop for a moment and take in this GOLD??? This is the brand new Moonshine Metallics in Gold Digger by Dixie Belle Paint!

I did not paint Marilyn! She is a poster….that I used spray adhesive to adhere her to the center of the bed. The paper did not trim out perfectly no matter how hard I tried!

So I used Dixie Belle’s Dixie Dirt in Ash to “age” (aka….cover the mistakes) very artfully (LOL) the outer edges of the poster paper. I also used Best Dang Wax in Black.

I never intended to keep this bed for myself…..but I have decided to do just that!

Marilyn will be moving into my guest room. I just can’t bare to see her go. She’s fun and flirty and full of personality….and she belongs in my house!
