Metal twin beds can add style and decor of your bedroom or room by painting it to match your overall color scheme. Metal Bed Frames can be found at bargain prices in many thrift stores and yard sales. These can be easily converted to look new and elegant with just a little work and a few cans of spray paint.
Remove the metal twin beds completely apart and remove the metal parts that you want to paint in an area that is well ventilated. Check all nuts and bolts to make sure they are in good condition. If they need to be replaced, put them in an envelope or plastic bag and place them anywhere in sight. Take the bag of nuts and bolts with you when you go to the hardware store so you can match the exact sizes.
