As promised I finally got around to finding the before pics of our bedroom- this room is the only room in the house so far that shows my love for Vintage style- I think we all have a need to surround ourselves of proof that there were those who came before us.
- Here she is in her 1973 blue on blue on blue- guess what I LOVE BLUE-- but not that shade. so out came the old shag carpet and the drapes that were very dry rotted. and the old light fixture too- ( put that in the crawl space- who knows, when a idea might creep in my head) If you peek out the window you can see the patio - that too had to be torn out- but yes, I kept some of the old wood- those ideas will pop up on future blogs.
room adjoining that. very cool for a home built in the 70's.
so this is our room now ....It is the most beautiful soothing blue-from Sherwin Williams-called Rain- it is in eggshell ( i have also bought Rain in flat- to paint strips at a later date)
I love my headboard it is over 100 years old- If you ever get to 8 mile in Detroit- go to Freds Unique Furniture- oohhhhh lala!! this also has a foot board that curves but the sides where not long enough.( they really didn't have queen beds back then)- another future project.
The side table was a thrift store find for $10 it is in perfect shape- I haven't the heart to paint it- this is my side of the bed my two storage Paris books homes my belts and other small items -the Vase is my very first and only Waterford- given to me by my mil- Karen, the roses inside are from my other mil Lorraine I added the lighted sticks it white and brown - the small statue and candle is in memory of my daddy- 9-23-10. I cannot believe I have not had my daddy boy for almost 2 years (i tear up just typing that) the wedding hands are a wedding gift from my sil Linda. the doilie it sits on my mother crochet at least 60 years ago. Funny the color is back and still one of my favorites. There is also a small blue vase I put my mothers lip stick brushes in it- they are funky green color and you push a button on the bottom and the brush retracks- very very old- at least 70 or so years and still has her lip stick on the brush- I love them she used those daily-
It is a frame that had our seat number to a wedding we attended- the little things i hot glued around it are all little bubble gum machine toys i got when i was 6 or 7 back in 71-72 - like I said i am very sentimental -
This is our infrared sauna - i did a separate future post on this and the decorations on top-
sweet g.w. finds- and another of my mom's crochet works
P.S. that is my mom on the box- 1940's
Thanks for stopping in and getting to know me a little better-
- Have a wonderful night- please stop back in!
