Bed Makeover

For my first project for the Tween Zebra Room I chose to do the easiest and quickest piece of furniture in the room....the bed.

BOY WAS I WRONG. How hard can it be to spray paint a metal frame?? Well if you live in South GA where it's 100% humidity most of the time, getting paint to dry is a hassle. Not to mention this time of year is so hot and the afternoon brings nasty thunderstorms that leave even more moisture in the air in its wake. SO, this wasn't the easiest and quickest project as I expected!

Here's what I started with: plain white metal frame bed.

ALWAYS BE BATMAN Boys Canvas Wall Art

I've seen this quote around a few times recently and thought it was hilarious. When I ran across this again as canvas wall art on Etsy I showed it to my 6 year old son, who giggled ;) I decided I would attempt to make it for him since I'm not going to spend $15-$29 for it and I had recently pinned a tutorial for adding quotes to canvas!

Our Tween Room Colors!

I am so ready to start this tween room makeover! Why am I sooo excited?? Because my daughter finally decided she's a girl!! My t-shirt and jeans wearing tomboy has changed. Now, will you find her with bows in her hair? Hahaha no way! If you could only see her facial expression if it was suggested. 

It's taken 10 years for this to come to fruition. And she wants to go all out! Even painting pink on her walls! Everyone who knows her....thinks they misheard what I said! 

I went through a lot of pink paint sample cards, with the help of good friends. We narrowed it down to 3 that I could live with on my walls and then I let my daughter make the final choice. 

The black is for her dresser and desk which I get to makeover too!
