My Apartment: Easy Wooden Monogram Update (before and after)

Remember the white wooden monogram I got from Southern Nest? Well it got a little upgrade!

Here is the before photo

Since I have all white walls I wanted to paint the monogram so it would pop on my wall

And now

I just used some navy spray paint I had. SO EASY!

I added the monogram above my bed. I am embarrassed to admit that after 2+ years in my apartment I STILL don't have a headboard. It is on the top of my list! I attached the monogram with the velcro command strips from 3M.  It is very light and I sleep with my comforter over my head so no major  earthquake risk. We have had several moderate earthquakes in the last few months and it hasn't fallen or moved at all.

    1. The funny thing is that I bought the spray paint before I bought the bedding and before I even thought of painting the monogram!

  4. Looks great! I have one in gold that I really need to paint, but I'm trying to think of a fun color instead of my usual black. :)
