DIY Tuesday :: Painted Peacock Headboards

My little girl is growing too fast. It’s time for her to get a big girl bedroom. I have been brainstorming ideas and I would love to see a vintage peacock headboard in her space. I’m thinking a bohemian style and vibe would take her into her teen years (scary thought). I have been searching all over L.A. craigslist for these headboards and boy are they hard to come by. I know I could just purchase an already made peacock headboard, but there is something about the thrill of the hunt. I want to find and create my own. I love them so much I’m even thinking of taking a road trip to Inland Empire for the one I found. Once I get my hands on one it will be getting the spray paint treatment. I’m thinking mint green would be a nice pop of color. Mixed with white bedding and an India printed blanket for a printed accent. Whatta ya think? Here is my inspiration..
