Buying Guide

It’s possible to repaint your iron headboard instead of investing in a new bed frame. A full-size iron headboard is a masculine addition to the bedroom, creating a strong, rugged aesthetic. But what if you want to make your iron headboard more unique? Painting it is an easy way to upgrade your bedroom.

First, you’ll need to apply a metal primer coat to the headboard to prepare it for painting. You should apply at least one primer coat and can do so with a sprayer or a paintbrush. Allow the primer to dry for minimum 24 hours before you begin painting.

Selecting your paint color is the fun part because this determines the final look of the repainted headboard. Ensure you’re choosing a paint that is specially formulated for use on metal. You can apply two coats of paint using the same application method you did for the primer. A sprayer may provide a more even coating, but a paintbrush allows for easier cleanup.

Once you’ve painted the headboard, allow it to dry for at least 24 hours before reattaching it to the bed frame.

Iron headboards mostly resist rusting but much depends on the type of iron used. Whether it's wrought iron or cast iron, certain circumstances can lead to faster rusting. Constant care of your full size iron headboard will lower that risk.

Cast iron headboards develop a protective film on the surface during manufacturing. This makes the iron more corrosion-resistant than other types of iron. The manufacturer is also likely to add finishes or preservative treatments to prevent oxidizing, or rusting, in even high humidity.

Wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon content, meaning that oxidation and rust occurs easily when it comes into contact with moisture, grime, and dirt. To avoid this, regularly clean your headboard with a mild cleaner, warm water, and a sponge. Always wipe completely dry afterward. Touch up any scratched or chipped spots to avoid rust. You can also apply a metal protection coating.

Iron headboards are incredibly durable and are constructed to hold a lot of weight. This sturdiness is what makes iron headboards an excellent investment as they can last for years.

Full size iron headboard models are exceptionally durable because of their dimensions. But, despite their strength and longevity, they're not as heavy as you may think. In most cases, they are often much lighter than other platform and solid wood beds.

Unlike other metal headboards, such as those made from aluminum or stainless steel, iron headboards are scratch and dent resistant, so they are less vulnerable to corrosion. You can protect your iron headboard and prolong its lifespan with regular cleaning and maintenance.
