Good Monday morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I sure did. The hubby, the kid and I took off Saturday morning on a spur of the moment overnight getaway to the beautiful Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We had a great time and the temps were in the upper 50's and lower 60's so NO SNOW!!!!
I love those big metal barn stars that are everywhere these days. I don't have a head board for my bed so I decided I would make one using these beautiful stars. We recently repainted the bedroom a mossy green and I wanted a cottagy country feel so I am using cream as an accent color and that's what I was looking for when I decided to use the barn stars as my headboard. Well, of course, I couldn't find any in the color I wanted that were reasonably affordable so I did the next best thing ~ I painted some!!! Here's a before picture:
And after I painted them:
I wanted them to look "rusty" around the edges, so I took some brown paint and used a dry brush technique around the edges. It must have worked because one morning hubby and I were laying in bed talking when he asked me where I got the rusty stars! I just started laughing! He couldn't believe it when I told him I painted it. He had to take one down off the wall and check it out!
Here's a pic of how I placed them on the wall. Please excuse the afghan spread out on the bed ~ that usually isn't there but hubby is still sleeping this morning so I couldn't get a better picture!
Well, that's it for now. I hope everyone has a great Monday! It's raining here so that surely doesn't help the Monday blues! But at least it's not snowing!! Yay!!
Until next time. . .
