More big girl bedroom updates!

We have gotten alot done this week :)

I have SO many updates to post about but I am going to try to do them a few at a time so if I run into a decorating/creativity lull I can still post and make it look like I am doing something!

The first thing I did was incredibly simple.

I found this piece of uhhh, whatever at a church rummage sale for $3.
I bought it not even knowing where I would put it in my house. But, I knew with a bit of spray paint it could be magical.

I was right. I decided it would go in Miss C's new big girl room. My mom helped me dismantle it (the teeny tiny screw heads were so stripped it wasn't even funny) and I got to work with my spray paint.

We managed to get the crappy old screws that came out of it back into it. We couldn't find screws that size anywhere! The hubby hung it for me and I am glad I asked him. I would have just popped two nails into the wall and called it a day. Turns out it is way too heavy for that and he installed anchors for me too.

I used it as a place to for some special mementos from her baptism right alongside one of my very favorite bible verses which she also got on her special day.

The next thing was also quite simple. No, it was easier than anything I have ever done before.

I found this piece on a trip to Salvation Army. Shocking, I know. Believe it or not I am NOT in there everyday and I do happen to shop in other stores as well.

All it took was some spray paint to make it perfect.  I know, yet another surprise from me.

I thought I could just use it on top of her dresser to hold trinkets or something and that is currently how it is being used. My creativity stopped flowing with the spray paint on this one. Any better ideas than to hold her hair accessories?? (of course I made all those too. And, my daughter refuses to wear any of them yet.)
