How to Save Money on a Headboard

Things are moving right on along in Babygirl's room. I actually worked on this I'd say about a month ago, but was being lazy and didn't add it to the blog. Babygirl was upgraded to a "Big Girl Bed" by trading in her toddler bed for a full sized bed. Only problem, it was just mattresses without a headboard. No worries though, a quick trip to my favorite thrift store for furniture, Goodwill, solved that problem. I found a headboard that was the style I was looking for but not the color. That small detail was fixed with a can (or two) of spray. 

What a difference a headboard makes! I'm still working on her bedding because right now it bores me but for now, until I run across something I love, it'll do! I recommend giving this simply project a shot if you are looking for a simple way to update a bed. It can be spray painted any color. Would you be surprised if I said I was considering spraying painting it something other than white now? If you know how indecisive I am then you shouldn't be! :)

Ok...I Painted It!

Remember about a month or so ago I was working on a chair I found at the thrift store. I was back and forth over whether I wanted to paint the chair or not. Well... I painted it and changed the fabric (again). I know, I know.. I'm indecisive, but, I like it waaaaaaay better now! Take a look at the before and after!

So why the second update? I honestly got bored with the update I made before. It was too safe. I wanted something that would pop in her room and I think this does the trick. If you don't remember, check out my first update HERE!
