My Weekend Project

I cannot refuse a deal, no matter what it is.

My husband was outta town this weekend and I came upon a daybed at a garage sale.  I bought the daybed for $10 and figured that I could give it a quick coat of Spray Paint, post it on Craigslist and sale it before my husband got home!  So on the way home I picked up a couple cans of spray paint.  I put my kids down for a nap and started working on this beast.  While my children where asleep I painted it, set it up, took pictures of it, posted it on craigslist and took it down (waiting for someone to buy it.) 

Here is how the daybed turned out...

Here is a picture before...
I was really proud of myself because I only had the bed for less than 24 hours and it was gone before my husband got home (thank goodness)!  I also made about $45 off of the daybed!
