Hey guys!!  I’m here today with a really fun and easy project for you!  It’s the last piece for my girls’ reading corner in their room.

Isn’t she pretty?!  It started last year (Yep, I said last YEAR!!) when I was helping one of my brothers and his wife move.  My nephew was transitioning out of his crib into his big boy bed and my brother was going to throw the crib spring out.  Have no worries though, because I came to the rescue haha.  Trash picking is kind of my thing so I saw potential where nobody else did.  I originally planned to paint it a cream color and hang it in my kitchen.  I partially painted it and then it sat.  And sat.  And sat.  Did I mention it just sat?  And that brings us to the present day.  Enter spray paint and a beautiful morning.

It’s really easy.  Just remember that when you spray paint you want to do several light coats as opposed to one very thick coat.  That will prevent you from having paint runs.  Paint it really well on the front and the back.  Once it’s all dry you can hang that bad boy up!  I used 3″ screws into studs and just laid it on the screws.  This is probably not the most secure way to do it so if you have little ones that will be pulling on it you will probably want to hang it up a different way.  My kids know that I am the only one allowed to put pictures on or off and in the few weeks that it’s been in their room they haven’t messed with it at all.

I got some cute clothes pins from the Target Dollar Spot, woot woot, and used those to hang up our pictures.  That cute wood sign is from Hobby Lobby and was on sale for like 3 bucks!  Yay, for a great deal!  I am absolutely in love with how my girls room is coming together!  I really wanted a gallery wall which I love a ton!

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

But this corner is by far my favorite!  Between the book display, wall mount doll house, tissue paper pom poms (target), the crib spring picture display, and that sweet In The Morning Jesus sign from my Etsy shop, I could stare at this space all day!!
