Okay guys, I have to admit that I pulled this out of someone's garbage.  It is pretty ugly, but as we all know a couple coats of paint does things wonder.  Georgia's painted headboard was my inspiration for this project, and when I heard about the Make it Pink Challenge I really wanted to participate.  I worked as a nurse in pediatric oncology for 8 years and my life has been very much enriched by the many children and families I met during their experience with cancer.

Fantastic save and stunning improvement! Even better, by finding it in the garbage you saved it from being unnecessarily buried forever.
