A New Headboard For Laci

Originally I had promised LuLu a new bed at tax time. But because the hubby was out of work for 2 months w/his injury we accumulated alot of bills & w/having to redo the basement we just don't have the extra money right now for it. So, I decided to try spray painting her headboard, hoping this would make her feel a little better about not getting a new bed. I had bought some purple spray paint a while ago & new that would be perfect. Purple is also the girls favorite color & my MIL bought her a new purple & pink bedset for Christmas.

Here is the before....

LuLu & Braedon helped w/the sanding.

Then it was ready for some color....

And the after....
I love it!

All put back together!

After it was all done I sent her up to check it out & she loved it!

Even hubby thought it looked great! Of course he likes the fact that I just saved us a bunch of money by doing this.

I'm joining Debbiedo's Spray Paint Color Partay!

Now go check out the other blogs & see what they have spray painted!
