OPAM ~ January 2010

Yes, I realize my title says January 2010 OPAM.
And yes, I realize we are already well into February.
"Life" has happened around here in the last few weeks, which has kept me pretty busy.
But I really want to share with you Isabella's completed headboard project.

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been browsing craigslist for a few different pieces of furniture. During one of my searches, I found a wicker headboard which I thought would be perfect in Isabella's room. She went with me to see it and instantly approved. SOLD!

The first thing we did after picking up the headboard was go to Hobby Lobby to pick up the spray paint. Isabella asked if she could pick the color all by herself. I took a deep breath, said yes and then held my breath until she made her final selection. I'm not going to lie ~ I was scared. That could have gone very, very badly. But after seeing what she picked, a color called Raspberry, I think she had it right on.

So we cleaned and spray painted the headboard and after a few days in the garage (phew, those were some strong fumes), we finally took it upstairs to her room.
It looks awesome! It definitely adds a great punch of color to a very purple room. And even though initially I had planned on hot gluing some Gerbera Daisies to the headboard, after much consideration my mom and I decided against it. I am however going to use the flowers on some fun art to be placed right above her bed. So stay tuned!

And I will leave you with a picture of my three crazies having a big ol' time!
