No It's Not Cutwork Silly.....It's Spray Paint!

This is another project that my friend and I did for her daughters apartment. I know.....I wish I would have had someone to do this kind of stuff for me when I was young and on my own. I got this idea from Frugal Home Ideas

I have seen many different versions in blog land.
Here is my version. I just wanted to add a lil sumpin sumpin! You know girls...you always want to put your stamp on it. So here she is all curly and purrrrty.








I did not get photos of the process as we made it but will be making another one.
I may use it as a headboard. I will do a tutorial then or you can check out the tutorial at Frugal Home Ideas. I was asked by a girl that saw it if it was cutwork?
Spray paint baby!

If you didn't notice what the difference is .....I layered mine...well overlapped the middle one on top of the 2 outer ones. Went to Lowe's and got some cute screws and washers.

Don't you think this would make a great headboard???????
