Find Numero Uno: (that's right I'm bilingual...booyah!)
A headboard that I purchased for only 10 dollars. The headboard had such graphic lines but a terrible orangey veneer. I knew I needed to take it home and paint it!
I have been loving indigo lately and so I decided to paint it a kind of moody "ocean at dusk" type indigo blue!
Here are the afters:
|This pic is taken with only one coat of paint hence the splotchiness. I ended up doing 2 coats of spray paint.|
I chose the indigo blue because I love the way that it looks with my more neutral seagrass green duvet. I also wanted the bedroom to be inspired by the beach in color and used subtle seagrass greens along with punchy indigo/cobalty blues, teals, grays, whites, and other neutrals. Here is a picture of the bedroom as it is now. We still need to raise the headboard up another 6" or so and repaint the walls. I picked the blue color when we first moved into the house and had different bedding and decor. I never really loved it and can't wait to get something more neutral (maybe a gray?). The lighting is bad in this pic but you get the idea.
So there you have it. A complete headboard makeover for only $15.00. $10 for the headboard and $5 for spray paint. And I LOVE it!
disclaimer: I said I'm bilingual. This is not fully true; my bilingual-ness only translates to numbers. I can count all the way to 100 in Espanol!
