And more before..........
Now how about a little after......
I wish I had a more detailed picture of the ceiling. It turned out so well! The Mister did a beadboard paneling with trim and it is exquisite! You would never know that there is ugly cottage cheese ceiling under there. Not that I hate cottage cheese because it's in most of the rest of the house.
This collage of vintage portrait prints is one of my favorite parts of the room. I was a little nervous putting nails in the freshly painted wall but it was well worth it! And this little lady....well, her name is Josephine.
I found her at a local consignment shop. I paid around $30 for her. My mom told me I was crazy but how could you not like Josephine?
I found the drapery panels at the thrift store. Both pieces for around $17.00. They retail for around $200.00! Actually I think they have been discontinued. They are Croscill in the Napoleon pattern. I was able to have the ascot valances custom made by woman that sells on eBay. The huge silver mirror above the bed is a Goodwill find. I paid $25 for it. That's more than I would normally pay but when I saw it I new it would look perfect above the bed.
Have I told you lately that I HEART THRIFT STORES?
