Garage Sale find!

I had been wanting a headboard for Becca's bed for quite some time. I thought we were going to have to make one, there was no way I was paying several hundred dollars for a new one. Until I found a great yard sale, sorry I forgot to take the before prior to my first spray paint pass.

It was so cute and curvy. Looked like a great piece except for the fact that it was Oak. I never have like the heavy wood grain and dark color of oak, but that can be changed.

Isn't is beautiful! Best part it was only $10! It ended up costing a total of right at $20 with the spray paint. It's important on a piece that will get lots of use to use a high quality paint. Becca likes to read books in bed so I know she will lean on it a lot.
Head on over to see Rhonda at Southern Hospitality for a thrifting party.
