Hey there, amazing Friends! It’s day # 30 ya’ll, and this party is just about come to a close. It has been a fun month of thrifty goodness, and I hope I’ve inspired you tackle a few projects of your own!
Today I’m sharing how I repurposed this French provincial headboard:
Those beautiful curvy lines get me every time!
I decided that this would look so pretty in a bathroom holding towels…
Don’t you think?
This is Annie Sloan’s French Linen mixed with about one third Pure White. I dry brushed it with Pure white, and sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
The center panel was just begging for something and I originally thought chalkboard, but decided to create this pretty graphic instead.
After creating in Photoshop Elements, I uploaded it to Blockposters.com and printed it out. Then I used the old-school method of transferring graphics…
Then I painted them in with black acrylic paint and a script brush.
After making sure it was thoroughly dry, I lightly sanded across the surface to smooth out any raised areas…
The hooks came from Hobby Lobby, but of course I spray painted them. 🙂
I’ve got one more thrifty makeover on the way to close out this seriously fun March Madness series.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing what I used this shower curtain for:
