queen in training...

Spray painting queen, that is.

I have always loved the idea of transformation! It comes in many forms. You can transform your mind, body nature and my favorite...home decor!!!


I've been lurking aroung blogworld for awhile now and have been witness to some of these transformations, seen here, here, and here. So I've been stalking my local thrift stores just trying to find something worthy of painting. I finally found it! This BIG, metal, ugly brown {not bronze} looking flower wall sculpture. Price tag...$7 on sale for 1/2 off! Total $3.50!!!

It may not be fantastic, but it was a great first project.
