Sorry for the absence. I swear I have been working like a bee on some great projects but, I hate sharing midway so some have to wait.
Our spare bedroom is a great place for snuggling up and reading a book and, it also welcomes our overnight guests. The original makeover when we moved can be seen here.
I have been hunting for a cheap and great headboard to makeover for our bed for quite awhile now. The gods of Kijiji were with me when I found this guy. (the before is at the bottom of the post, it was quite hideous)
Out came the Annie Sloan Chateau Gray with pure white underneath, and a generous dose of dark and clear wax.
Of course, a new headboard means a little re-decorating for the room too.
tis the seasons for fur blankets and fur pillows everywhere. nothing says snuggle like fur.
the mansard window was found at a local antique haunt for a great deal. i almost sat on it in the store so no one else would see it while i tried to find out the price and get it in my car. what can i say, i get excited. i am so the person at estate sales and auctions shaking and waving my hands with excitement. no poker face here!
from the doorway. a sunny window keeps a lot of orchids happy.
a new vignette for the dresser with berry picking basket, antique tins and old gilt frames
i added a green blanket to the stool to tie the greens together
the antique crochet was made by my Nonni (italian for grandma)
a good glimpse of the green
up close of the top of the dresser
oohh, the before! i added the white first so when i gave it a light sand the white would come through for texture.
Well I'm off to snuggle in my newly made up room.
Have a great night,
