My 2nd reveal of the week and its only Wednesday! Yippee, ME!
Okay, so remember those hideously ugly end tables I got from Goodwill for $10 each?
^ For once, these pictures show the true green! YAY! ^
I haven't quite decided if I'm going to put the little grates back in. I spray painted them silver and they actually look pretty good when I hold it up behind the side openings, but I'm still pretty iffy. What do you think?
These will go into the master bedroom, along with the rocking chair, when I start that
My idea for the the bedroom is cream and white bedding with gray and green accents. The only things that will be green other than any bric-a-brac I find, will be the end tables and rocking chair. I cannot wait to get started and I'm beginning to get impatient waiting on the diva's room. I still can't figure out why certain places on the wall don't seem to be cured yet!
While I've been waiting, I've been working on the boys' room and picking up stuff here and there for our bedroom. Check out these finds from Ebay. . .
**All prices include shipping costs**
At the same time I won the first pillow cases I had a bid on a vintage Bates Chenille Hobnail Bedspread. Unfortunately, I lost that bid by a measly $0.50 because I wasn't able to be home to keep track of the bidding. Errrrrrrrrr....
So, I immediately began searching for another one and made sure my max bid was high enough that I would win. I won this vintage Bates Chenille Hobnail with a Fleur de Lis design in ivory for $45.01. Its more of a creamy color than white, but it is gorgeous and in mint condition! See for yourself. . .
Love the fringe!
Yesterday, I won a white hand embroidered tablecloth for $10.07. I'm going to repurpose it to go on the bed to add more layers and texture. Needless to say, with all this white and ivory going on, the hubs is going to be taking a shower every night right before bed. I don't care how exhausted he is! And the kiddies are going to be banned from the bedroom! I want our bedroom to be a sanctuary and that means its a kid-free zone - except when they're sick or have a nightmare, of course. :)
Currently, I've got a bid in for a white Matelasse coverlet that I am determined to win. It will complete the bedding that I have envisioned for our "new" room - well, except for a white hand crocheted tablecloth/bedspread, but those are pricey! I've currently got 4 days and 1 hour left and I'm watching it like a hawk. Totally fell in love with this! Here are a couple of pics I snatched from Ebay:
Beautiful, is it not? Now don't go on Ebay and run the price up on me now! LOL
And all of it is going to look beautiful on this one of a kind brass bed from Brass Beds of Virginia that my parents had handcrafted and I inherited:
What a wonderful family heirloom piece this will be one day!
So, that's what I've been up to. I can't wait until I get the upstairs bedrooms done, so I can start working on the downstairs. Too bad I've probably got 2 months or better to go. :( Maybe I'll surprise myself and get it done sooner. This beautiful weather we've been having is perfect for any home rehab!
Tomorrow? Well, let's see... Hopefully, I'll finish painting the boys nightstands that have been sitting with the primer on and ready to go for about a week now and if I'm feeling extremely ambitious, I'll begin work on Ian's chest of drawers and the twin beds.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
