As with all my rooms, each one has a story to tell. In a previous post, I talked about my sewing space created in a closet. That space is in this room. Every thing you are about to see has been purchased at a yard sale, junk store, or simply passed on to me from another. If you are giving away anything, I probably will have my hand up and say, "I'll take it". Also included are gifts from my daughters.
This room started with the painting hanging over the bed. I purchased this at a flea market for about $20. It was covered with brown goop. I really didn't know how beautiful it was until I could get it cleaned up. It was my inspiration for this room.
The bed frame was rusty and needed a good coat of paint.
Of course, this chair was not white when I purchased it at a yard sale. Neither was the bench. Each piece had to be stripped of the original finish. I had an old chenille bedspread I used to re-cover each piece. Don't you think they look nice?
This small table also needed to be stripped and a new coat of sealer applied.
The black painted console and matching mirror have been in the family for about 50 years....so no money out of my pocket for it.
On a trip my daughter made to South America, she gifted me with this beautiful pastel drawing. And the colors were perfect for this room.
What you are looking at was originally a door way into another bedroom. (No hallways in this house). I took advantage of the opening and installed shelving. The small colorful painting on the shelf was a gift from my youngest daughter.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my home.
