The Beginning of a Great Makeover!

I've been wanting to make over Cameron's room for a while now. I found a perfect piece to go in his room, which spurred the make-over on. Cameron loves sports, so this is the theme for his room.

What is the perfect piece? I found a set of lockers on Craigslist for $20.00. I was so excited, and knew they would be perfect. The lockers were a basic tan. I wanted it to be red, so spray paint to the rescue! I love spray paint! What an easy way to transform something. Of course, the possibilities are endless. I used Rust-oleum spray paint to transform the lockers.

I love it! I love the storage too! Well, that is a sneak peek into his room makeover. The denim curtains and locker are new. Many more changes to come! What have you transformed with spray paint?
