Goodwill to all

My husband probably thought I was crazy bringing home this ugly painting from the Goodwill...but it was only 9 bucks and I knew I could use it to make a magnet board for Lily's room. (remember the felt board in Zach's room...same idea...just for magnets instead!)
...some galvanized steel, paint and glaze (thank you mom) ...they love it!
In fact, Zach keeps asking when I am going to make one for his room!
I liked the color so much...that late one night after painting...I started scheming what else I could "transform"...first my breakfast tray...then maybe dave's nightstand...a few chairs and, AHHHH put down the paintbrush! I called my good friend Amy and told her to please bring over anything she wanted turquoise, so that I didn't paint every accessory I own! The offer still stands! (although the breakfast tray didn't make it!)

Oh my gosh, Tara, I LOVE that! It looks so good and you've inspired me to do something creative. Really, I love it! What is the magnetic board that you inserted in the frame? Where do you get that?

On a sidenote, where did you get the black and white bedding? I've been looking for something just like that for a guest bed.
