Headboard Revamp

When I met Hubby he had this headboard.

It was in good condition and we didn't have much when we moved in, so we kept it. Well it's a headboard for a queen and since the move we have upgraded our bed to a king. The headboard did not fit properly with the bed. Plus we don't have a lot of extra space now that we have the larger bed. It's been a year and we finally got it out of our room. It's just so big and bulky but it's a nice structure and I didn't want to just get rid of it so I thought it would make a great bookshelf for my son's room. The shelf is high enough he can't pull everything off, which is awesome if you have a kid!

I used the leftover spray paint from that star project and I even ended up buying two more cans of it. I should have bought one more though to make the finish look really good. So what do you think? I am very happy with.

I plan to paint chalkboard paint in the center later down the line so he will have his own art space. Thanks for stopping by!
