Oh my friends, miracles never cease! I finally finished painting my bed white. Just in time for Christmas!
What I thought was going to be a weekend project turned into a month ordeal. That’s right, for the last month hubby and I have been going all feng shui and have been sleeping on our mattress on the floor.
I had been thinking about painting my bed for some time now. Originally I planned on waiting until Spring. One beautiful Saturday in November I decided to just go for it! Thought I would finish it by Monday. lol! What was I thinking? The bed had a lot of detail and it took me 4 coats of chalk paint to cover it like I wanted. Of course, only to sand lots of it off.
This is what it looked like last year. I loved our bed for years, but it really was getting dinged up. What do you think? Do you like it white? Be honest, I can take it. Hee-hee!
I must say, I am loving it! After hubby put it back together last night I teased and said we’d better be careful and not fall out of bed. After all, the last month we’ve just literally had to roll out of bed in the morning.
This year I used the dotty pillowcases and red euro shams that I bought a few years ago from PB clearance. The toile pillow was one I had from Ikea and my ruching white pillow is my latest clearance find from Thanksgiving Point. I had my eye on it for some time and was thrilled to find it marked down.
I’ve shown my redwork quilt before because I made it 7 or so years ago. In case you are new here I’ll show a few blocks. I still love it for the Winter months!
Now how about a peek at some of my bedroom Christmas décor. A lot of it is just Winter themed and I leave it up until February.
After we bought our new sectional for the family room this rustic green door made it’s way into our bedroom.
I found the little bottle brush wreath yesterday at a thrift store for 50 cents. The French script snowman is new this year from T.J. Maxx. Funny thing, I just gave a large tote filled with snowmen to my son and dil last year. Trying to down size. Mercy, here we go again!
I placed my tinsel tree from Smith and Edwards (an after Christmas find one year) on my yellow bench. Notice we still have snow. And were suppose to get more today. Hasn’t happened yet.
It has a bit of rustic charm in an old Coca Cola crate. A few simple red ornaments and cardinals is all it needed.
I hung the wreaths as usual from my white curtains. Draped across the bench is a red and white throw I made and a ruffled pillow I bought from my hairdresser, Shalana.
This year I rolled the extra ribbon on the top of the wreaths into a flower.
I created a cottage vignette above the fireplace. The little pom pom garland was another thrift find.
This little fella is handy to have around after a big snow storm. He shovels for only a quarter.
The stockings were hung. . .
And the red wicker chair was dressed up with a ticking pillow for a cushion and draped with a small Christmas throw.
The top of the red cabinet got a Winter scene also.
I still love my copy cat PB linen advent I made three years ago.
Yup, I think we’re ready for the big day. Now that I finally got that bed painted. Keeping it simple above the bed with a chalkboard canvas I painted last year. I wrote one verse from the song, “Winter Wonderland’.
Just a few little last minute things. . . off to wrap more presents!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
