Shutter Headboard

Easy as one, two, three...

I looked on craigslist for four shutters and paid $20 for these. I washed them down and spray painted them the colors that I wanted in my spare bedroom. It really is THAT easy!

This room is not finished. I plan to get or paint old night stands white. Place a nice country themed lamp on them and also add more pillows. I originally wanted a yellow quilt with a little green in it but this quilt will have to do for now. :) Here is the original picture that I got the idea from. It would be cuter if the headboards were wooden so that you could make them more rustic looking. 

From frumpy to Fashionable

This shirt was given to me by my older sister. She purchased it online from Maurices and she didn't like the way it fit her. I tried it on and also didn't like the way it fit me. The front used to be a dipped neck so whenever I were to bend over, the ladies would be hanging out. What I did was cut the front of this shirt and turned it into a fashionable slip on cover-up. 

Moral of this story... before throwing out any clothes. Take a good look at some fashion magazines and you clothes and see if you can change them up. As simple as cutting.
