This End Up headboard and footboard baseball makeover (Part 2 Bedroom)

Footboard Before and After

This is part 2 of the bedroom makeover from old This End Up furniture to a little boy's baseball-themed room.  It continued with the headboard and footboard.  I added a baseball diamond to the footboard so it would be facing out to the room.  I first applied Zinsers 1-2-3 primer right on to the wood, followed by the paint, and then Minwax Polycrylic in satin.
The finished diamond

For the headboard, I drilled two worn baseballs into the headboard posts and painted "slugger" in the center.  I did the same as above with the primer and paint and Polycrylic.  Since my handwriting is not the best, I used stencils for the letters.

The baseballs make a perfect spot to hang a hat!

This End Up Night Table Makeover to Baseball Theme (Part 1 bedroom)

It started with a dresser by This End Up that a friend asked me redo for her grandson into the baseball style dresser she had seen earlier (click here for the first baseball dress).  You'll see that dresser in part 3.  But then I stumbled upon a matching night table and I ran with the baseball theme.  I wanted to keep the wood showing through so I opted for painting just the side panels.  Both sides of the night table were given the Zinsers 1-2-3 primer.  Then a coat or two of white paint.  I scuffed it up a bit and then added the Phillies "P". 

I used the MinWax Polycrylic in Clear Satin to seal in just the painted sides.  And with that, there's a finished night table for a little boy's room!
