DIY | Updating a decorative piece

Hey Guys!

Today’s post is going to show you how I take an ordinary purchased decorative piece and update it to fit the theme of my bedroom.

Let’s get started! I started out with this piece I purchased from Burlington Coat Factory. It was on clearance for $3.99.

Here is the finished product.
