I love my boyfriend Craig.
He saves me so much money.
I don't know how anyone could buy furniture without him.
After weeks of searching for a quirky and cheap headboard for our guest room I found exactly what I wanted.
So I packed up the girls, made the trek, bargained it down to $20!!!, loaded it in the van, drove home and introduced it to my other boyfriend, Spray Paint.
I nestled it on top of my new canvas tarp and gave it a nice coat of primer. (Why I have been doing messy home improvement projects for the past ten years without one is beyond me. Probably the best $23 I have ever spent. Cleaning paint spills off of concrete is both no fun, but now a thing of the past.) I was tempted for a minute to leave it white, but white is too safe. I don't like safe. I like quirky. I like unexpected. I like color.
Add a can of Valspar's Mediterranean, edible pillows from Meg, a few quilts, and the room is ready for it's inaugural guest.
I couldn't have done it without my lovely boyfriends.
Who's staying over?
