A few weeks ago, I was in Goodwill and spotted this.
A little elbow grease combined with sandpaper, then a couple of sprays with black spray paint, followed by more sandpaper for distressing the edges and this is what I've got.
The price? $2.49 for the rack + $2.97 for the spray paint = just under $6 with taxes added. No bad and just as good at the Target racks. ;) And, it turns out I did need a rack after all. I had these stacked between my nightstand and bed. They looked like a mess, but now not so much. ;)
Just for good measure, I thought I'd show you the headboard. It was $6.49! Why couldn't I have found a deal like that last month when I actually NEEDED a headboard for the boys' room? Instead, I found headboards for between $25 and $100! Sigh... I went with the cheapie $25 one for their room while we're in transition. But seriously, I wished I'd found this last month instead.
