The week is half over and I still need to do a write-up of the Lowcountry Artist Market, which was a lot of fun. In the meantime, here is some bedroom progress to share!
We’ve needed a dresser in the bedroom since we’ve moved in but nothing has happened, for a variety of reasons. I have been hoping to score something close to a campaign chest for some time now. I came close to one at one of our local Habitats, but we didn’t have the extra funds at that time and it was gone when we went back. This particular Habitat is on the pricey side, btw. We’ve had a rattan dresser in the garage. My mother has had it for years but sometimes I have an aversion to it. But push came to shove on Sunday and Michael pulled it out, cleaned it and we brought it upstairs. I was originally thinking we’d shove it in the closet but something got the better of me and I put it in the corner on my side of the room. I like it. I think it works. I may eventually paint it but for now, it works. Oh, and several treasured pieces have been able to come out of storage we well! The red magazine rack refurb can be found in this post.
The Leo light can be seen lit up here. We still need to add the extra lights on the board and decide if it’s going to live there. I’m considering moving the Jane Avril over when we finish a frame project we found at a thrift store.
Here it is June, after we changed the comforter and I found the mirror, which I needed for the Farmers Market.
We bought the lamp two years ago with the intention of painting the wood and brass elements, but nothing has been done to it. So, I changed the lamp shade (we had the same color and style in house) and put it out. I have been able to make use of a small display case we found while thrifting earlier in the year.
