Before we got married, Zak and I bought a bed frame that is really beautiful, but now A-doesn't fit in our very small bedroom and B- isn't really our style anymore. So, it's in storage, along with the majority of our other possessions. Our bed really looks bare without a headboard though. After a trip to IKEA as-is (my very favorite place to find stuff to repurpose) and one can of gray spray paint, we now have the perfect headboard. And the price was definitely right. The total for the whole project was less than $10!

One of my favorite spray paint tips: If you've ever done a lot of spray painting, you know that your finger really starts to get sore after awhile. Ouch. I picked up a nozzle attachment (Walmart-$2.50) a few projects back and it makes all the difference!! No more sore fingers and the paint goes on with more even strokes. I will never spray paint without one again. Super cheap and attaches to all spray paint brands (the attachment I have is Rustoleum brand, but I always spray with Krylon). If you are planning on doing a lot of painting this summer, I highly recommend getting one (And no, they aren't paying me to say that. But they should).
