I realized that if I waited until each room was totally complete to show you, it would take months(or years). So I am going to show you my master bedroom, "almost" finished. Then when I add the curtains and little extras, I will re post and show you the new additions.
In the previous post, I showed you my French chair redo. You can see it in the picture below on the left. This is the view when you are walking into the master bedroom. The door on the very front left is to the master bathroom.
Here is the BEFORE picture below when we saw it staged before we bought the house.
In the picture below I am standing next to the French chair looking across the room. You can see two walk in closets on either side of a dresser. I somehow did not take a before picture of this area. The two walk in closet doors have been replaced with these panel doors. Originally they were mirrored doors.
Edited to add: I found the picture of the mirrored closet doors. Here it is...can you imagine waking up to that wall of mirrors every morning?
On the night stands you can see the lamps we made using vintage porch balusters. You can see how I stripped and created them, here. Some of you have asked about a tutorial for wiring a lamp. Mr. Comforts wired the "twin" to this one today, for his night stand, and I took pictures and notes. A tutorial is coming soon.
The picture below shows the other side of the room. The armoire holds our TV. I hope to add dried hydrangeas to the French market basket on the top of the armoire. We still need something on the wall next to the armoire.
The shams and duvet comforter are from Pottery Barn. The pattern is called Alessandra Floral. It was based on a 250-year-old hand blocked textile from Provence. The pillow cases with the dotted edge are also Pottery Barn. The floral needle stitch pillow, I have had for years. I think I purchased it on EBay.
The landscape painting over the bed was a find from the Screen Door in Asheville.
The painting above the dresser, as well as the bust were purchased on a trip to France a few years ago. The coral was my parents, they brought back from Hawaii, before there was a ban on harvesting coral.
I still want to add some curtains/drapes (what do YOU call them?) and a few more wall decorations.
I love the serene feel of this bedroom.
Up next time....the guest bath.
