For Your Viewing Pleasure....

It seems like it's taking FOREVER to finish up our bedroom and kitchen re-do. Started both projects at about the same time a couple of months ago and I'm STILL not quite finished! I'm waiting on my drapes for the bedroom, I have to make a roman shade for the bathroom, and I haven't decided where to place all my architectural pieces.....but I decided when I started these rooms I was not going to rush anything and only use things I loved. I had to wait quite a while for the headboard from Ballards, and while I was waiting on that, I had the bedroom and bathroom painted and started looking around for just the right things to use in the room.....



So here's just a little peek at the headboard with the bedding and monogrammed shams. The wall color is Sandy Hook Gray....not a true french gray but a deeper shade of gray. At first, I wasn't really sure about it but now that I'm bringing in all the shades of white and textures, it is really growing on me.



I was concerned that the creamy pintuck upholstered headboard would not blend with the all white bedding but it turned out really good. The headboard appears somewhat yellowish here but in reality it's a creamy white.





The large white mirror I got at a local flea market for $40! I'm sure it was probably a gold color at one time but the vendor had painted it gloss white. I really love it. The white lamp on the table was originally green but it got the white spray paint treatment. Picked it up at a little yardsale last summer for $5.00!





Here's a floor lamp that I got antiquing and junking with Rhoda last summer. It had a wooden base and pretty green shade....so I repurposed it for this room by spray painting it and swapped out the shade for another one on another lamp.


Added some sparklies to the shade for bling!

I think it turned out really pretty.
Here's a little bench at the foot of our bed. It had a tapestry cover on it so I just covered it in this pretty linen fabric. It will go under the windows when the drapes get hung.

And here in all their glory are my prized architectural pieces. I had planned on using the large piece over our bed but for some reason, it didn't look quite right, so I left the star mirror there. I just love this piece so I want to give it a place of honor when and where I hang it. The large white angel piece I found in a spare closet.....forgot I had it! I had already painted it white several years ago when the cottage look was coming into vogue. I'm hoping to get all these placed real soon.
I got this bracket for $2.50 and I wish you could see the color. It's kind of a washed antiqued gray and I think I will use it on the narrow wall next to the white floor lamp and hang a picture over it.


I've not jumped on the "birdcage bandwagon" even though so many of you have but when I saw this birdcage at the same place I picked up the bracket (above) I just couldn't pass it up! You can see the price, plus it was 10% off! It was painted dark green but of course, it's getting the white spray treatment. I think I might use it on my bay window in the kitchen.



Keep your fingers crossed those drapes come in soon so I can get them hung and finish up the bedroom. Then I'll post a lot of pictures!

So pretty and fresh. I love it!
I am in the middle of doing over my kitchen.....2 months and counting! Hope it will be done soon.

That is a glamorous bedroom. It's hard to be patient and let it all come together. I've experienced that with my current living room project.

Can't wait to see the finished room.

Judy,

Your room is turning out so luxurious and I love the idea of the mirror behind the side table, who would have thought (apparently not I).

Hi Judy.
Thank you for sharing your bedroom with us.
I love that grey on the walls. It does look lovely with your headboard.
I am so impressed with all of your found objects.
That bird cage is going to look fantastic after it is painted white.

Girlllll! It's looking SO good, I know you are excited about it so far. Love all those architectural pieces, esp. that urn, wow, that is a beauty. If you have any leftovers you decide to part with, let me know!

What a deal on that huge birdcage. I would have bought that too! Something like that would look great on top of my bookcase in the new guestroom.

I love everything! That is going to be one gorgeous room. Hope you and I can get together before the holidays. We'll be traveling quite a bit the next couple of weeks, but let me know if you can get away one day. xoxo

I love the way this is shaping up! It does have the cottage charm, but seems more refined. Maybe cottage elegant? You are creating such a luxurious, tranquil space!
