Staple Guns and Spray Paint Are So Much Fun!

I needed 'something' to hang over my son's bed...but what?

I decided to get creative with some half-off canvases, fun fabric and a staple gun....and then a wooden letter with some craft paint....but it was still missing something....what though?

So, the next day, I begged my husband to take me to the church rummage sale...lol...he hates those things, but he was a sport and came in with me. And I found a great gold, ornate frame for $5! I took it home and spray painted it silver...and ta-da....

I think it looks great!
