Wall Bust Before and After

I am trying to work on new before/after projects.  I found this gem at America's Thrift Store in Fultondale, Alabama.

Yeah, that is velvet, and terrible.   I ripped the velvet off (it was marked on the back with 1976 and "given to my grand daughter 2011," looks like grand daughter dumped this beauty.)

I washed it with dawn in the sink (after ripping the lovely smelling velvet off), and let it dry.  I coated it with one coat of white Valspar primer spray paint.  When it was dry, I applied two coats of glossy white spray paint.  AND . . . 

100% better, and less than $12.00.
