That's My Girl

You may remember when I showed you my daughter and son-in-law's apartment last spring. Their bedroom was pretty, but not everything they hoped it would be.
That was then. This is now.All it took was purchasing a new comforter set
and pretty curtains.
I advised them to hang the curtains all the way across
behind the bed. It looks luxurious and disguises the off-set window.
Her good friend found the headboard
at the thrift store for seven dollars.
A few cans of silver spray paint changed the whole appearance. They also sprayed the lamps and hardware on the nightstands
to match.

All it took was a few simple changes for this room
to go from pretty to glamorous.

Everything looks very glam. I adore the color cobination of brown and soft blue. It's so sophisticated.

I think you are so awesome! I love to "Thrift" and find fabulously gorg goodies. You totally inspire me to create and think outside of the box more often. I love your projects and your willingness to share! I am in the process of doing your huge frame/canvas project...when it is finished I hope it is ok if I share and then link you so others can know where I got my inspiration from!?

I agree it did go from pretty to glamorous. It's encouraging to know that a few small changes and very little money can make such a big difference.

Great job! Amazing how a coat of paint can take a dated, grungy headboard and turn it into a real jewel! Room looks fabulous.
