It’s finished! After moving my sewing area, I was finally able to turn our extra bedroom into something that I love. I just put the finishing touches in place earlier today. Sorry for the quality of my pics. It was very cloudy today.
I love this vintage bed! It is on wheels and is a little higher so there’s plenty of storage room underneath. And best of all……it was FREE!
That’s an old architectural piece above. It came from my Mother’s. I just found the little oil painted landscape this week at a thrift store. $3.00!
My not so impressive collection of cream colored vintage purses. All three of them! I won’t pay over about $6.00 so it may take awhile to collect more. The lamp and shade….thrift store. I recovered the shade and painted the brass bottom on the lamp. The mannequin was one of my splurges. I have so much fun with all of my “girls.”
All I had to do to this lamp shade was add the little flower. I used a floor lamp that I already had.
I made the slipcover to use on an old vintage chair that I had. The basket holds what few vintage linens that I own.
Almost the entire wall to the left of the bed is glass. It is VERY expensive to cover! What started out as “make do,” I now actually love. Shabby Chic sheets from Target, cream colored drapes in the middle. The valance is actually an old vintage piece of fabric that I found last year for $5.00. I added the ruffle. Everything is clipped on at the top. For added privacy, I strung super cheapo sheers from Wal-Mart on a wire and hung them behind my make do drapes.
The valance wasn’t quite long enough, so I hid the shortage with vintage baby clothing and such.
Going on around the room, this is my corner unit. It’s actually a computer desk. The bottom opens and it has a fold out shelf for the keyboard. Those bowls…….what can I say, I needed a place for cat food that Molly couldn’t reach.
On the wall opposite the bed is my vintage bench that I shared with everyone awhile back.
Boy, that wall looks plain doesn’t it? I guess I won’t hang anything there unless I just happen to find something I can’t live without.
And finally, the wall to the right of the bed.
So that’s it. My little slice of whimsy! If I find something or maybe create something a little quirky and silly……this is the room where it finds a home.
Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I did the best that I could in Photo Shop. I just need a new camera. Which I could probably afford if I would stop redecorating. :) Oh well…..
Have a beautiful and happy Easter!
