Spray Painted Wicker

 A while back I bought this cute little wicker seat for $40.  

 And not until just recently have I decided on a color to spray paint it.
Being almost 7 months pregnant, spray paint is the way to go.
With proper breathing protection of course.
Here it is after a couple coats of brown

 First, I used a wire brush to chip off some of the peeling white paint, then I primed it with a spray paint primer.  After it was dry, I used a brown Rustoleum paint, two coats.

It's a lovely spot to sit and relax.
Keep your eye out for these old wicker pieces, they are very easily fixed with a little paint.

Room Reveal

Over the past few weeks, I've been slowly finalizing the look of my daughters big girl room.  She's adjusted fairly well to her new bed, however she does get up earlier now :(.   She is 2 years old and very independent.  So when she wakes up and comes to find me, she starts rummaging through all my stuff until I get up.
We love her dearly and it's been so much fun to watch her transition from a baby into a toddler.

Here is the room waaaay before (with old camera)
 It was difficult to get a nice shot of the whole room, so here it is in pieces.

 I decided to do somewhat of a gallery wall above her bed.  She loves flowers and they go nicely with the green walls.

and the dresser re-do here

The glider chair will soon be transported into the babies room.

Budget Breakdown:
All of the picture frames, mattress, glider, bookshelf, I already had. The bed was free. $40 for the dresser, $40 for the bedspread. The curtains I got for $10 a panel on clearance at TJ Maxx.  
And so in all I spent about $100 on this re-do.
Not too bad, if I do say so myself.
