Vintage Bed Makeover for the Girls Room

I recently did a little decorating with spray paint... 

When we moved Oct. 1 the girls had to start sharing a room, we decorated it with a "Paris" them and the colors are black & white with lime green as the accent color.  I had an idea for the bed, I wanted a "vintage" looking iron headboard.  I started looking at antique stores and online for ideas and finally found this on Craigslist:

It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, I really just wanted a headboard - not a footboard (because they are not as easy to make the bed), but for $80 I figured I could make it work! 

I wanted to paint it black to match their room, so I went to Home Depot for sandpaper, primer and paint.  I went with the Rust-Oleum brand and I think it turned out great.  This is what it looked like after I sanded it, I forgot to take a picture after I put the primer on :(

Here is the finished product in the girls room - it looks really cute, don't you think?
