Guest Room/Office/Sewing Room
The piece in the above picture is one of my favorite finds!! I will be doing a post soon on all the amazing things that I have acquired at garage sales/clearance sections/craigslist (free stuff). But the little table was from a garage sale last weekend, it is a 1940's nurses bed side table, now the significance of that is, my Grandma's nurses uniform from WWII is in the shadow box!! I was so excited when I found it, and even more when I only paid 10 BUCKS!!
Oh this is another favorite bargain find, this was originally 60$ and I paid 11$ at Target on clearance! I have several friends in Vegas that will be loving the print!! :)
To all the husbands out there, please don't be jealous of the fact that my husband goes to bed each night feeling like a princess underneath a canopy! I try to tell Jimmy that it is actually quite functional as it protects us from the mosquitoes :)
I LOVE eclectic stuff, old mixed with new, colors, textures, masculine and feminine styles all together. The little side table above was made by Jimmy when he was in High School and the chair was from Pottery Barn but I got it in a consignment shop for 75$ about 8 years ago!!!
This framed letter is the love note that Jimmy wrote to me when we were 10, I kept it all these years and then decided it deserved to be displayed!!
The woods look really dark in this picture but the day was almost done and there aren't a lot of lamps in there yet! They are more cherry ish and brown, I still have some things I want to refinish in this room but they have to wait in line as I have other projects to do first!!
This is the hallway upstairs that I decided would be the perfect place for lots of old and new family pictures! I am not a sketch it out kind of girl, I just start hanging stuff until I like the way it looks!
