Finally! The toile guest bedroom that I have been blabbing about for years is taking shape! I am so excited to finally see the room that has been brewing in my little brain for ages! I still need to hang a few pictures and I am searching for the perfect frenchy black headboard, but I am getting close!
The plant stand was painted black and topped with the wooden tole-look tray that I found while Goodwill hunting in Asheville, NC with Barb and Kathysue. Thanks to my friend Pat for the inspiration! The bedding came from Target ages ago…the original source for my toile vision!
…last week I found this framed poster while GW hunting with my friend Linda at Nina’s Nest and now I am debating. The poster must have been a souvenir from a trip to France that was professionally framed, because there is nothing available like it anywhere. The artist Adrien Moroni is from Monaco and has a studio in picturesque Saint Paul de Vence. And…I only paid $6.96!! I’m trying to introduce some splashes of red and yellow to brighten up the room. What do you think? Maybe the bunnies can go over the bed facing each other?
My wonderful flea market frenchy chair is here along with a new Target chest (on sale) that I had to assemble…yikes! One of my homemade vintage tags is hanging from a knob. And Isabella is checking out my $40 bargain rug from the Ballard outlet!
I love this frenchy print! I had been eyeing it at an antique/flea market for months when it was finally reduced and had to go home with me! Woo hoo! Do you see that my Dollar Tree critters are the same as the ones that are stacked up in the picture? The lamp was a GW find to which I added a Hobby Lobby tassel. I bought the shade for a song while standing in line behind a woman who wanted only the lamp base she was buying! lol It never hurts to ask!
And the vase is actually a broken silver flea market coffee pot that got polished and repurposed! I am so happy about my new room that sometimes I just stand in the doorway, stare and smile! lol Do you ever do that?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please head on over to Mary’s at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday to see one of her beautiful mosaics and to find a list of this week’s participants. You will be treated to some wonderful photos from some very talented people!
Next, be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday where you can get a peek at her gorgeous home and see what sorts of changes she is making, as well as find out who else is playing along! I can’t wait to see what everyone has going on!
I’m also joining Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal for Silver Sunday! It’s a new blog party and what a great idea! It will be fun to see the wonderful ideas our fellow bloggers have for using Grandma’s old silver in some new ways!
See you next time! A la prochaine!
