Yes, you have all been so patient. I have talked about my new house and shared snippets on Facebook, but here the posts were not about my new house. That’s because back in June, I wrote, and wrote, and wrote. I wrote posts to get me through until September. I knew things would be crazy and I would have no time to write posts, photograph anything, or edit anything in Photoshop.
You might notice the luxious $7 paper shades with the plastic clips in our windows. Yeah, Mr. CH was tired of me flashing the neighbors and he was tired of the morning sun streaming in on Saturdays, our one day to sleep in.
Let’s stroll around the room, shall we?
There are lots of antiques here, an antique pine armoire, topped with an antique French laundry basket (from Round Top) two needlepoint French chairs (consignment shop) and that table between them is actually the top of what used to be a grandfather clock, that I found at auction. On the wall is an original oil painting of sheep, baaa.
In this corner is an amazing French tapestry settee I found on Craigslist for about $200. You can read more about it here. On the wall is a door that came off one of my French armoires. When I stripped the silvering off of the glass and changed it from a mirrored armoire to more of a china cabinet, the inner part of the door needed to be removed. (Truth be told, someone else did the actual work here, I just came up with the idea.) The sconce on the door is from Ballard Designs, I love it!! And the nesting tables are some I bought from an antique dealer.
Here is the armoire with the mirror converted to clear glass. it sits in my breakfast room. You can see more of the kitchen here.
The plaque over the bed is also from Ballards, while the large oversized basket at the foot of my bed is from Hobby Lobby. I topped the bed off with some antique French linens, for more click here.
Remember the vanity I found at the thrift store? Here she is in her new home. (Click here for the story on her.) That gorgeous lamp is one I found at Round Top. The dealer/artist takes salvage pieces and turns them into lamps. This piece was once part of a porch railing.
And that’s a tour of my bedroom. I’ve ordered window coverings so I’ll show you the room again when they come in! Actually I’m sure you will be seeing this room again and again, so I sure hope you like it, hee, hee.
