I know you all thought this might be the final showing of the kids rooms, but it is not. I have been rearranging my room, and I got this fabulous new piece to go in there. I just could not wait to show it off. So hopefully this will inspire you some, and help hold you all over for the big reveal. I know you are all loosing sleep over it. hahaha... Don't you wish I wanted to do something better with my time. However, I don't; it's to much of my passion.
Here is a bit of the before:
I just never felt completely finished in this room, but I am so satisfied now. Here is the after:
And we can't forget my favorite new piece. Are you ready? I could not pass this up. It was something that I knew I would never find again. Here it is:
An antique mirror, oh my heck... I am in love. Here is how it looks in the room.
I also found the shabby candlestick on the wall at an Antique store for $5. It was so perfect that I could not pass it up. The mirror really was a steal for a
mere $70. I usually don't spend this much, but it is one of those pieces. I knew I wuold always regret passing it up. It was originally $145. Plus, my great friend talked me in to it. I have been doing a few close friends hair, so I used my hair money.
Here are a few more peaks at what is going on in this room. I love how the mirror's play off each other.
Most of the furniture in this room was free. I made my own headboard from a few shelves that my mom bought for my birthday, and some old FREE windows.
The rocking chair was my Grandparents, and Jonathan sanded and painted it for me. I covered the seat with a 1/2 yard of fabric, and had some left over.
The dresser was made by my great grandfather. It was my dads when he was a kid. I just repainted it.
The night stand, I found at a yard sale for $2. It just needed some paint.
The big white table, I found on the side of the road. All it needed was some paint, and a little antiquing.
There you have it... the perfect beach cottage, for pretty cheap. I wanted to be surrounded by memories of our life on Saba.
Thanks for looking.
