The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
I seriously cannot contain my excitement for my latest thrift store find…. Eeee!
On a spur of the moment decision, I stopped by our local thrift store. I scoped out the downstairs and then made my way upstairs (YES, our thrift store does have 2 floors… AND I live in a small town…?!). I had just rounded the corner from the book section and walked right into a whole bunch of brass headboards.
Immediately, my heart started beating overly fast!
You see, I’ve had my heart set on this certain headboard for awhile now. It’s from Pottery Barn (shocker), but the price was waaay out of my budget…
But in that huge pile of headboards, was the one… And it just happened to be the ONLY ONE with the matching footboard. And, it was a queen.
You know where I’m going with this, right?
$35 later I floated out of that thrift store on a cloud. It was wonderful.
I continued to float my cloud straight to the hardware store where I picked up 4 cans of oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
Here it was before:
You’d never know that it wasn’t from a big store, like Pottery Barn.
I tell ya, that spray paint is amazing stuff.
I was so excited to show you, that I haven’t even attached it to our bed frame yet, or talked to the hubby about building some extension legs to make the headboard taller.
We’ve got to do a little bed switchero and grab the queen from the guest bedroom and move the full from the master bedroom back to the guest bedroom.
In the mean time it’s just propped up against the wall and bed… obviously I moved it when we went to sleep, but you better believe I put it right back in place the next morning.
And then my heart started beating fast again… You know, because I hadn’t seen it all night. I woke up and it was even prettier than I remembered.
And then I hopped back on my cloud…
P.S.- Now I’m on the hunt for a few new bedding items… 🙂
