You probably think that it takes me for ever to complete a project, and some times it really feels like it to me. Back in June I posted about refinishing the headboard in my bedroom, and I ask for help with giving me ideas on what kind of bedding would look best on it.
I had so many wonderful comments and I thank all of you for your help. It was taken me a while to decide just what bedding I really wanted and I had to weigh all sorts of reasons why I couldn’t have the lacy one that I thought I wanted. So here is what I came up with as well as some other new changes in the room. Click here to see the first post.
My biggest concern was having a spread that was not my life style. I have four little grands that jump in bed with me every night to read stories so I wanted something that we all could snuggle down into and me not worrying whether something was going to tear or get ruined. So I found two quilted bed sets on eBay. All the bedding plus the bed skirt was under $100.00, with free shipping. My kind of buy. Can’t beat that! I wanted to put blue’s and all shades of white into the room. I have had pink and reds for a very long time and I was ready for a change.
I love the cream and whites together. I think it really complements the headboard. Nothing more timeless than a classic white quilt.
I needed something architectural in the room so I painted up these old louvered doors with my distressing process. If you missed the post click here.
I also brought in some pieces of my blue and white transfer ware. I think that they blend perfectly in this blue and white room. I am going to be adding some vintage reds and pinks into the room. But it will take some time to find the perfect tattered, chippy, faded pieces that I love. Always something to collect.
Then I came across these great stained glass windows at my favorite junk’n shop and I knew right where they were going to go. So the shelf got a color change to.
Now my little dressers new coat of paint fits in well with rest of the room.
