Pink Headboard blooms in any garden.

I took an old headboard and painted it a vibrant pink to make a bold statement. I used dark green vinyl letters to spell out "Garden". I was inspired to do this project for all the women that cultivate hope for a cure and for all that have grown and bloomed with the help of this wonderful organization.

It makes me want to upscale other things to go with one if I make one for one of my garden spaces. Anyone got some ideas to go with it? ~Mary~ Posted: 9:27 pm on April 25th

georgiamoon writes: Thanks to everyone for your kind words. I think that all of us can make a difference in this world, even in small ways. I luckily have not had a family member with this particular disease but a lot of people I call family have unfortunately had to live through this for a while I may be painting everything "PINK". It is so motivating to be creative when you know that it will help the cause. So y'all get out the pink spray paint and go to town!!! Love to all, Georgia Posted: 1:30 pm on October 9th
