I built a rapid-fire painted bed for an unexpected visit from family (shown below). I think I spent $80. I blasted it out in a weekend using big box plywood, wainscotting, fake wood trim, and fence posts (you can see them inverted LOL). If you woodfill any voids, sand, and prime the plywood before painting, you shouldn’t have any problems; I didn’t. It’s not going to grace the cover of Fine Woodworking but it doesn’t sound like that’s what you’re after. Good luck!
